PPO Insurance Coverage for Varicose Veins in Los Angeles

Advancements in medicine have not only made varicose vein treatments safer and more effective, but they have also made them more affordable. The cost of varicose vein treatments depends on the type of procedure you are having done and the severity of your varicose vein problems. Our Los Angeles vein doctors will help you navigate through the many surgical, laser, RF, and sclerotherapy options that are now available to eliminate medical varicose veins and cosmetic spider veins.
 
The most common procedures for varicose veins include EVLT, Venefit, laser vein removal, foam sclerotherapy, and ambulatory phlebectomy. Depending on the severity of your symptoms, many PPO insurance plans cover the cost of vein treatments provided certain pre-surgical criteria are met. It is always important to try conservative treatments first in order to minimize the amount of surgery needed to improve your condition. Conservative treatments include leg elevation, application of Omega Vein Cream with Horse Chestnut, taking frequent breaks while sitting or standing for long periods of time, and compression stockings. Our two board certified vein doctors recommend Venasmart compression stockings for patients before and after vein procedures.
 
In order to determine the cost of your varicose vein treatment, we recommend a comprehensive vein consultation so that our board-certified doctors can examine you, map out your veins, and perform any needed diagnostic studies such as vein ultrasound, veinlite illumination, and Doppler color scanning. Once the vein examination is complete, our vein doctors will recommend a custom-tailored treatment plan that addresses your cosmetic and medical needs.  Of course, cosmetic spider vein treatments with laser or sclerotherapy are rarely covered by medical insurance plans.
 

PPO Insurance Out-of-Network Providers in Los Angeles

Our patient care coordinators will be happy to assist you in scheduling an appointment for a vein consultation with one of our vein specialists. During the visit, you will be able to speak one-on-one with a board-certified surgeon who is familiar with surgical, laser-based, and injection-based vein treatments. If you have PPO insurance, our coordinators will help you obtain insurance benefit verification, pre-authorization, and pre-treatment review for coverage of your vein procedures. Our office is an out-of-network provider for most major insurance plans including Anthem Blue Cross, United Healthcare, Pacificare, Cigna, Aetna, Humana, and SAG insurance.
 
Many of the most common vein problems are medical in nature and occur in healthy adult men and women. EVLT with laser, microphlebectomy, vein surgery, and surgical ligation of veins are all covered by PPO insurance provided medical criteria are met. Our vein experts advise against delayed treatment in favor of early intervention for vein disease. The sooner you treat your veins, the less they impact on quality of life.
 
Our experience with varicose vein coverage by major PPO insurance plans has been positive for medically-justifiable varicose vein treatments. If you are suffering with common symptoms of varicose veins, such as leg pain, heaviness, itching/burning, restless legs, cramping, or chronic swelling, you may qualify for vein treatment.
