At Vein Associates of Edina, our practice is limited to the diagnosis and treatment of "medically necessary" vein disease. This is why your insurance plan covers all or some of the cost of treatment. Appropriate referrals to qualified practitioners are provided for the treatment of "cosmetic" veins. Many patients ask, "Do my veins require treatment?" and "What treatment is best for me?" Veins that cause leg pain, swelling, blood clots, bleeding or skin discoloration or sores are prime candidates for treatment. Each patient's individual treatment plan is created based on the results of their standing ultrasound exam. Most insurance plans cover the cost of the ultrasound exam. So schedule you consultation today!
Vein Associates of Edina offers patient financing through Care Credit, Capital One Healthcare Financing and Chase Health Advance.
