Spider vein treatment is usually considered a cosmetic procedure by most insurance carriers and is rarely covered.
Varicose vein treatment is covered by many insurance companies if it is considered medically necessary. All insurance plans require a venous ultrasound before they will approve treatment.
Medical necessity may include:
- Venous Insufficiency
- Pain and Leg Cramps
- Ulcers on the Legs
- Bleeding from Varicose Veins
- Presence of Reflux on Ultrasound
Some insurance carriers will require three months of conservative therapy before they will consider treatment a covered medical expense. Conservative therapy may include wearing compression stockings during the day, leg elevation, and in some cases, weight loss.
