Does Insurance Cover Vein Treatment?

The short answer is possibly.

Various factors are considered when assessing whether insurance will cover your vein care. From symptom type and severity to a personalized diagnosis, we will work with you and your insurance company to get you the best and most coverage possible.

In some cases, especially aesthetic treatment, insurance may cover little to no of the treatment cost. Before you opt into a treatment plan, we will discuss the coverage and costs so you can determine if and when treatment is right for you.

Does Insurance Cover Varicose Vein Treatment?

So, you’ve been diagnosed with varicose veins—now what?

You may find yourself wanting to get treatment to reduce the unrelenting symptoms of varicose veins or reduce their appearance for aesthetic reasons. Still, you probably ask yourself, “Is vein treatment covered by insurance?”

While various vein conditions are covered, in part, by many insurance companies, the main factor to consider is whether your treatment is for health reasons or aesthetic purposes. While some insurances won’t cover varicose vein treatment to simply fix their appearance, others may cover treatment if they’re impeding your health or causing painful or severe symptoms.

Before deciding how to proceed, it is crucial to ask your insurance company, “Is varicose vein treatment covered by insurance and, if so, what is my coverage?” to determine the exact amount you’d receive for varicose vein treatment.

Does Health Insurance Cover Spider Vein Removal?

Like varicose veins, many people with spider veins often wonder, “Does insurance cover vein removal?”

Here, the answer still depends.

While varicose veins are typically considered more of a health issue than spider veins, where the treatment goal is often to lessen their appearance, there are several factors to consider when determining if spider vein treatment is covered by health insurance.

Most spider vein treatment is considered an aesthetic procedure, so it's typically not covered under insurance. Still, factors such as the type of insurance you have, the severity of the condition, and the overall terms of your health policy play a role.

It is important to contact your health insurance provider directly to understand your specific coverage. Your insurance company can provide the most accurate and up-to-date information regarding whether spider vein removal is covered and what requirements or documentation may be required to qualify.

If your health insurance company does not cover spider vein treatment, there are various alternate payment and financing options we are happy to review with you.
