Good News! Most Treatments For Vein Disease Are Covered By Insurance!

Medicare and most commercial insurance companies cover the diagnosis and evaluation of varicose veins and venous insufficiency. Treatment coverage by Medicare and other insurance depends on an in office evaluation by our vein care specialist and what we find on your ultrasound exam of your legs. 93% of our medical patients have their treatments covered by insurance. Medicare and most insurance companies may first require you to try conservative treatments including the use of compression hose, prior to approving laser ablation treatment and other minimally-invasive procedures. Our vein care specialists will happily walk you through a full benefit estimate prior to treatment.
