Comprehensive Venous Diagnosis and Treatment
Most insurance companies will pay for a clinical evaluation and venous color duplex ultrasound exam, if indicated, for pain, tenderness, swelling, abnormal skin conditions, or varicose veins. The insurance companies vary considerably in terms of whether they will pay for treatment of various vein conditions. Most of the procedures which we perform are covered by the patients’ insurance or by other entities such as Medicare.
Many insurers require for treatment procedures that the patient still experiences significant pain, tenderness, swelling, or an abnormal skin condition due to venous disease that continues to cause a limitation of activities of daily living or significant other problems in spite of a course of “conservative” treatment.
