I'd like to have the treatment for my varicose veins. Will I need a referral? Will insurance cover the treatment if my GP isn't involved?
Depends upon your insurance plan ask your primary MD or your ins. Co. for details.
I can't answer that question because it solely depends on your insurance. Managed care is typically run through a PCP. HMOs are examples. Other insurers, including Medicare, do not typically require a referral. That question needs to be directed to your insurance carrier.
Contact your insurance company about the referral but the treatment should be covered.
This depends on your insurance carrier. Check with them to see if you need a referral before consulting with a vein specialists.
Most insurances cover treatment. As for if you need a referral, that depends on your insurance. Some require a referral others do not. I would recommend calling your insurance carrier.
The answer depends on you insurance. If you have an HMO you most probably need a referral from your GP. If you have a PPO plan most probably you don't.
Usually you should not need a referral to see a vein specialist. However, it would be best to check with your insurance carrier.
If you belong to an HMO, you probably need a referral. Most other insurance agencies do not require a referral. You can just make an appointment.
