1. It Might Be More Affordable
Varicose veins often come with symptoms such as bulging, leg discomfort, heaviness, fatigue, and swelling. They may also cause skin discoloration and open wounds in the ankle area. Due to the fact that varicose veins affect your health and are more than just a cosmetic concern, most insurance plans provide coverage for most varicose vein treatment.
If you’re living with varicose veins and are close to meeting your insurance deductible, this is a great time to undergo treatment. Treating them now may also make sense if you’d like to use up your Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or Healthcare Savings Account (HSA) before the end of the year.
2. A Period of Conservative Treatment May Be Required.
Depending on your insurance company, you may have to wear prescription-grade compression stockings for a certain period of time before receiving approval for varicose vein treatment. If you don’t, your insurer may deny your coverage request and leave you in a position where you have to pay for your laser treatment out-of-pocket. Since this time period may be as long as 60 days, it’s in your best interest to start the process now so that we can complete your treatment by the end of the year.
