Medically necessary varicose vein treatment such as Ambulatory Phlebectomy, Endovenous Laser Therapy, and Radiofrequency Ablation Endovenous Therapy are normally covered by Medicare and most insurance plans.
Sclerotherapy performed in conjunction with a medical vein procedure, may also be covered by insurance. However, cosmetic sclerotherapy treatment alone, is not usually covered by most insurance plans.
Premier Vein Clinics accepts most health insurance plans. Please call your health plan to verify our surgeon is a participating provider under your health coverage. The phone number to contact your health plan customer service should be listed on your insurance card. At the time of your appointment, please provide current copies of your insurance card(s) and notify us of changes immediately. We also need your co-pay, deductible and co-insurance information.
Vein Consultation Appointment
Your initial consultation appointment with a Premier Vein Clinics physician will be billed to your insurance company. You will be responsible for the office visit co-pay at the time of the appointment.
Based on the treatment recommendation of your Premier Vein Clinics physician, we will submit the treatment coverage request to your insurance company. The length of the insurance approval process varies by company. Please note: many insurance plans require varicose vein patients to undergo 90 days of compression stocking therapy or medication therapy prior to approving coverage of a treatment.
Your procedure will be scheduled after your insurance plan has approved your treatment. If you have no insurance, we will work with you to coordinate the financial aspects of your care.
