How Much Does It Cost To Treat Varicose Veins?
Many of our patients at Albuquerque Vein & Laser Institute are relieved to learn that their insurance plan often covers the treatment for Varicose Veins and related vein disease if it is determined to be medically necessary. Although each insurance plan/provider has their own specific requirements, vein treatment is considered medically necessary if the patient presents with symptoms of discomfort, including pain, heaviness, swelling at the ankles, discoloration, bulging veins, etc. In addition, the results of a diagnostic ultrasound test (performed by our staff right in our office!) must show the presence of venous reflux (backward blood flow in the vein, which is what causes the symptoms, including bulging veins).
