How Much Does Varicose Vein Treatment Cost?
It is important to note that most insurance plans will cover vein treatment if it is considered medically necessary. Varicose veins are typically accompanied by discomfort, pain, heaviness, swelling at the ankles, and bulging which make it medically necessary to treat them. This is great news for the patients when looking at the treatment costs.
Although the cost of any treatment will vary by geographical location, the experience of the provider, and the size of the area being treated, the average cost for Endovenous Laser Vein Therapy in the United States is $1500 – $3,000. While that is a very large price range, the amount you’ll pay for your EVLT depends on how many veins are treated and your insurance coverage. Many insurance providers offer full or partial coverage of EVLT, when it’s deemed medically necessary. You’ll need to have ultrasound scans that show venous insufficiency or venous reflux disease to obtain insurance coverage. The best way to determine your out-of-pocket expense is to schedule an in-person consultation with Dr. Robert Cutchen. He will be able to propose an individualized treatment plan for you, and his experienced staff will provide your expected out-of-pocket costs based on your deductible, etc
