What Insurance Covers

Since insurance companies vary widely on coverage, we will check in advance with your carrier to see what services are included in your plan. Once you are evaluated through the office we will review medical necessity and insurance policies regarding coverage for treatment. We will let you know if your insurance will cover your recommended treatment plan and whether or not any type of prior authorization is required. If your insurance plan does not cover treatment we will review other methods of payment such as Care Credit and self-pay.

Nearly 25% of the world’s population suffers from some type of vein problem. They range from conditions like chronic venous insufficiency to venous thrombosis. Vein disease is associated with unsightly bulging veins or discoloration of the skin and spider veins however not everyone that has vein disease has visual symptoms but suffer from physical symptoms such as pain, heaviness in the leg that is relieved with elevation, cramps and itching and burning.
