Varicose veins are considered to be medically necessary, and treatment is, generally, covered by medical insurance if the patient has developed complications or has activity-impairing symptoms of discomfort, and if ultrasound evaluation documents insufficiency or reflux (backward flow in the vein). In this case, insurance companies consider treatment for varicose veins to be medically necessary and, typically, will provide coverage. Some insurance companies require a trial of compression stockings before approving other treatments.

Our staff will do everything possible to maximize your benefits and make the insurance process as smooth as possible. Premier Vein & Body participates with the following insurance plans:
