The Question of Who Pays
Is Treatment for Varicose Veins Covered by my Insurance?
Generally, the answer to the question of whether your insurance company will pay for varicose vein treatment is yes!
Varicose veins are considered a medical condition in those who are symptomatic and who are diagnosed with venous insufficiency. Health insurance companies and Medicare will cover the costs of treatment if you are experiencing these symptoms:
- Leg Pain
- Swelling in the Legs and Feet
- Feeling of Heaviness in the Legs
- Burning and Tenderness in the Legs
- Impaired Blood Flow
You should note that insurance companies will typically require that patients try more conservative varicose vein management techniques for a time before they will approve the various varicose vein ablation techniques. Compression stockings are usually the favored treatment in this case, and Jilanne can prescribe these if you require them.
