Vein Treatments & Insurance
Will Insurance Cover Varicose Vein Treatment?
Virginia Vein Care accepts most types of insurance and can connect with your insurer to find out if your vein treatment is covered. We have worked with most commercial insurance plans in the past such as Aetna, Anthem Blue Cross, Cigna, and others.
Varicose veins and spider veins are symptoms of vein disease which can cause other health conditions if left untreated. For this reason, many insurers such as Medicare and Medicaid offer to cover treatment.
In many cases, insurers are eager to see that your vain procedure is not for cosmetic reasons but is intended to treat an underlying condition.
Out-of-pocket expenses are determined by the treatment you receive and your insurance plan.
Treatment for Venous Insufficiency
The condition most often associated with varicose veins is what is known as venous insufficiency. This is a condition in which the blood flows backward into the vein and builds up in the lower leg rather than traveling back to the heart.
The following symptoms are associated with venous insufficiency which may be covered by insurance:
Restless Leg Syndrome
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s vital that you speak with an experienced vein doctor so they can exam and document the severity of your varicose veins. While every insurer has different requirements, you should not let that stop you from seeing Dr. Markovitz at Virginia Vein Care who can offer you the benefit of his many years of experience in treating vascular conditions.
