We accept all major insurance plans and provide free insurance verification
Most vein treatments are covered by insurance plans if they’re deemed medically necessary. And despite popular assumptions that they’re harmless, spider vein and varicose vein treatments are often medically necessary, especially if you have underlying chronic venous insufficiency. Venous insufficiency is a dangerous medical condition wherein the collapse of vein valves leads to the accumulation of blood in leg veins, which, in turn, leads to spider veins, varicose veins, restless leg syndrome, and other problems.
We provide free insurance verification even before your appointment. You can enter your insurance details on our website to kickstart the process. Our insurance concierge will review the terms and conditions of your insurance plans and contact the providers on your behalf. We actively work towards lowering your out-of-pocket costs and maximizing your insurance coverage. Generally speaking, insurance coverage is only available for treatments for chronic venous insufficiency, but we may extend coverage to spider vein treatments, as well.
We always diagnose chronic venous insufficiency
Chronic venous insufficiency is a circulatory disorder wherein your vein valves collapse. In healthy veins, the valves act as one-way doors to ensure smooth one-way blood circulation to the heart, i.e., against the force of gravity. When your vein valves collapse, blood flows backward due to gravity and accumulates in the leg veins, leading to spider veins, varicose veins, leg heaviness, restless leg syndrome, leg cramps, and leg swelling.
Diagnosing chronic venous insufficiency is an essential component of your vein treatment. Unfortunately, some vein clinics curate treatment plans without diagnosing vein disease, i.e., they focus on cosmetic relief from spider veins. Treating spider veins and varicose veins without addressing the root cause is a wasted effort — the spider veins will inevitably return. That’s why you should only consult vein clinics that diagnose chronic venous insufficiency and provide comprehensive, personalized vein treatment plans.
During your appointment, the vein doctor will examine your leg veins, review your medical history, and ask about your signs and symptoms. You should inform the vein doctor if you experience leg heaviness, frequent leg cramps, restless leg syndrome, or other symptoms of vein disease. Finally, the vein doctor will perform ultrasound scans to visualize the blood flow in your leg veins and diagnose chronic venous insufficiency, once and for all.
We only provide minimally invasive spider vein and varicose vein treatments
Our Texas vein clinics only provide minimally invasive spider vein and varicose vein treatments. You should only consult vein doctors who provide minimally invasive procedures for your vein problems — surgical treatments are no longer deemed appropriate because they’re needlessly complicated and risky. Minimally invasive procedures lead to better and safer results, with a lower risk of complications, and they conclude within an hour with no downtime.
The following is an overview of your minimally invasive vein treatment options:
- Radiofrequency ablation involves using thermal energy to destroy the diseased vein.
- Endovenous laser ablation involves using laser energy to destroy the diseased vein.
- VenaSeal involves using medical-grade adhesives to seal the diseased vein’s walls shut.
- Ambulatory phlebectomy involves the physical extraction of superficial varicose veins.
- Sclerotherapy involves injecting a medicine into spider veins to make them disappear.
Our vein doctors will highlight the advantages, drawbacks, costs, and insurance coverage options of all the minimally invasive vein treatment options, helping you make an informed decision. The procedure may conclude within an hour, following which you can resume your daily activities and work immediately. In fact, most of our vein clinics schedule their vein treatments during their work lunch break.
