Blue Cross will only cover your vein treatment if you meet the “medical necessity” definition as defined by your description of benefits.
Blue Cross and Blue Shield has very strict guidelines that must be followed before they will pay for varicose vein treatment. At our office we provide a BCBS worksheet for patients to complete in order to determine if they have meet all of the criteria before proceeding with any treatment. Even if your symptoms are painful and interfere with your daily activities, your ultrasound reveals positive findings, and conservative therapy failed, BCBS may still deny treatment.
We will do everything in our power to ensure that your insurance company is responsible for covering medical necessary care.
