varicose veins

varicose veinsNothing is more important than your health. With that said, we also realize that finance is also a factor when it comes to choosing health care. The good news is that vein treatment in the majority of cases is not only a cosmetic issue it is also deemed medically necessary treatment and therefore very often paid for by your medical health insurance.

What do insurance companies look for in order to deem your condition as medically necessary, let’s take a look.

There are eleven standard symptoms

  1. Aching legs
  2. Painful legs
  3. Leg heaviness
  4. Itching legs
  5. Burning sensations
  6. Cramping
  7. Throbbing sensations
  8. RLS (Restless Leg Syndrome) Your legs twitch involuntarily at night as you are trying to fall asleep.
  9. Leg swelling and edema
  10. Darkening of the skin and discoloration
  11. Ulcerations on the legs caused by venous insufficiency

Vein issues start with a smaller onset and gradually over time progress. It isn’t a health condition that will heal itself if you just let it be. Over time vein disease spreads because the weakened veins cannot contain the blood due to pressure and they are unable to help pump it back up to the heart normally. As the blood pools, the veins stretch and weaken, even occasionally bursting leading to blood bruises and ulcerations and yes, more varicose veins and more associated health risks which can even lead up to blood clots and DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis) – this can put you at risk for pulmonary embolism, stroke, and heart attack.

While varicose veins are generally covered, spider veins are often not. It is best to check with your insurance provider before scheduling treatment to confirm specific coverages.
