Accepted Insurance Plans

Before treatment of symptomatic varicose veins, most insurance companies require that the patient completes a trial of compression therapy. Typically, this means using prescription-strength stockings to see if this cures your varicose vein symptoms. Please contact us to determine how long compression therapy is required before treatment of your venous reflux and varicose veins will be considered a covered medical expense.

In-network with Blue Cross Blue Shield.
