1. You Have Met Your Deductible (or nearly so):
You’ve probably had your share of trips to the doctor for other things during the year and have slowly met your deductible. Now is the time to take care of your vein health since any procedures that are deemed medically necessary will be covered by your insurance with little or no out of pocket cost to you!
2. You Have Remaining FSA/HSA Funds
Although HSA funds will roll-over, FSA funds will not – you use them or lose them! These can also frequently be used towards cosmetic spider vein treatment, which is not usually typically covered by insurance.
3. Fall and Winter Can Keep Your Treatments Comfortable:
For most vein issues, insurance companies mandate the least invasive treatment, such as medical-grade compression stockings, be tried first. Thankfully, the fall and winter months are perfect for these tight and warm garments. Additionally, the cooler weather means long pants, long skirts, and even stylish boots which can serve to protect your skin from sun exposure as well as hide the fact that you are getting treatments. Compression hosiery is also required after varicose vein treatment, as well as after spider vein treatment. When spring rolls around again, people will admire your great-looking legs and never know you had vein treatment!
