Initial office visits to discuss vein-related issues are typically covered by health insurance as part of your major medical benefits. If you require minimally-invasive vein treatment, we work with your health insurance company to obtain preauthorization for those treatments. While insurance company requirements vary, the term “medically necessary” is very important. “Medically necessary” infers that your vein-related symptoms are physically bothersome and noticed during the day. “Medically necessary” vein treatment should be covered by your insurance company and our office verifies coverage prior to surgery. If your insurance denies our request, and the treatment is medically necessary, we will submit an appeal on your behalf to your insurance company. This is not guaranteed, but we will make every attempt to get your insurance to cover medically necessary vein treatments.
