People often wonder if insurance covers varicose and spider vein treatment. The answer to that is: sometimes.

Generally, if an individual is seeking to have minor spider veins removed solely because of appearance, treatment is usually not covered. But quite often, the reason for varicose vein treatment is because the veins are damaged and are not functioning properly. In this case, Medicare and most insurance covers the procedure. It’s always a good idea to check with your insurance provider to verify coverage. Our office staff can also help answer questions that you may have.
