As the end of the year is in sight, it’s important to note that this can be the best time of the year to seek medically necessary vein treatment, as most flexible spending accounts and insurance benefits will soon expire. In addition, many patients have met their insurance deductibles by now, with their new deductible starting over on January 1st. If you have been suffering with varicose veins and delaying treatment, now is the time to act!
Insurance providers consider varicose veins to be medically necessary when complications such as clotting, bleeding or skin changes have already developed from them, or when they cause such symptoms as heaviness, aching, tiredness, throbbing, burning itching and/or swelling, which can impact an individual’s routine daily activities or ability to work.
Please call Albuquerque Vein & Laser Institute to schedule your free vein screening at 505-848-8346. Our experienced vein treatment staff can determine your eligibility and guide you through the insurance maze of medical coverage.
