A physician referral is not needed for treatment*
Medical necessity requirements vary by individual insurance policy, but in general the varicose veins or venous disease must cause symptoms such as aching, throbbing or restless legs.
Many insurance companies, including Medicare and Blue Cross Blue Shield, cover medically necessary treatment of varicose veins. We will accept what your insurance company allows for payment. Your responsibility is determined by the terms of your insurance policy, which typically requires your payment of unmet deductible, co-pays and co-insurance. There are literally thousands of different insurance carriers and each carrier has many different plans.
*Patients participating in an HMO must have a referral prior to treatment
