Although there is a law that obliges the SUS to offer special shoes or orthotic for patients with so-called diabetic foot or polyneuropathy, the procedure has been happening in practice. For this reason the Committee on Social Security and Family rejected the bill 3031/08 by Mr Sandes Júnior (PP-GO), which would force the SUS to provide these materials.

According to the text of the bill, there are more than 5 million diabetics in the country, and one of the most common complications of the disease is diabetic foot disorder that affects the sensitivity of the upper and lower limbs, favoring the appearance of lesions and wounds, especially in feet. However, the rapporteur of the matter, Mr Rogério Carvalho (PT-SE), said redundant considering drafting a law to force the federal SUS to perform an action that he has incorporated into its routine.

The proposal of conclusive character, is now considered by the Committees on Finance and Taxation, and Constitution and Justice and Citizenship.
