You might be thinking that your varicose veins are just a cosmetic issue, but they could be a sign that your vascular health is compromised. If that is the case, and if you are suffering from venous insufficiency (CVI), it is almost certain that your health benefits provider will cover most if not all of the costs of varicose vein treatment, especially if you are experiencing any of these symptoms:
- Pain in the Legs
- Edema or Swelling of the Feet and Legs
- Heavy Feeling in the Legs
- Burning Sensation and Tenderness in the Legs
- Compromised Circulation in the Legs
AVIA Can Help With Insurance Questions
The staff of Advanced Vein Institute of Arizona (AVIA) is happy to help you determine whether you are eligible to have part or all of your varicose vein treatment costs covered by your insurance provider. Our qualified vein specialist and Clinical Director, Jilanne Rose ANP-C, will provide a thorough examination, complete with duplex ultrasonograph, to determine the state of your vascular health. Beth and Michella are available to answer all of your questions about insurance, scheduling and pre- and post-treatment care, and they can assist you in determining how much of treatment costs will be covered by your provider, and whether you will be responsible for covering any balances.
Insurance providers will also commonly require patients try more conservative treatments at first, such as compression stockings, to see whether their leg pain and varicose vein symptoms will resolve easily. AVIA specialists can provide assessments and prescriptions for compression stockings, if required.
So…Does Insurance Cover Varicose Vein Treatment?
Every insurance company and policy is different but generally the answer is YES! Having your questions answered, upfront and honestly, will help give you peace of mind, and make the process easier for you. Contact the vein specialists at Advanced Vein Institute of Arizona to determine whether your varicose veins are a sign of a deeper issue, and whether your insurance will cover some or all of your treatment.
