Healthcare and Vein-care

Don’t let the financial crunch effect your decision to remove ropy unattractive varicose veins. The economy may be on a downturn, but some more cost-efficient removal procedures do still exist. If you’re looking to save some pennies when choosing the removal treatment best suited for you, follow some of the tips outlined below.

Endovenous Laser Treatment is covered and reimbursed by insurance companies and Medicare. So EVLT is often the best route for patients seeking insurance help. However, procedures like scelerotherapy are considered cosmetic treatments and are not covered by healthcare. Other financially viable options are VNUS Closure Fast and Radiofrequency Occlusion. The VNUS treatment runs around $2-500 dollars per leg while Radiofrequency, if done on a patient with varicose symptoms, is fully or partially covered by insurance.

So if you’re looking to pinch some pennies, but still get rid of unsightly veins the aforementioned money-saving techniques may be an ideal avenue.
