Are Varicose Veins Covered by Insurance?

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, AHCCCS, 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 typically require that patients try more conservative varicose vein management techniques for a time before they will approve the various varicose vein ablation procedures. Compression stockings are usually the favored treatment in this case, and Dr. Rose can prescribe these if you require them.

Sonja B., Advanced Vein Patient

"Don't put off these treatments for your legs. I am very pleased that The Pain has been removed from both my legs, due to the treatments I received from Advanced Vein Institute of Arizona.

The outstanding attention given by the caring staff and Ms Rose helped me recover from extreme pain in both my legs. It took just a few days to recover from my treatments and if I had questions I was allowed to call Ms. Rose, for quick answers.

THANKS to all the Staff at Advanced Vein Institute for the loving care!"
