Does insurance cover varicose veins?Contrary to popular belief, insurance companies do cover the diagnosis and treatment of the majority of these vein conditions.

Not just a cosmetic issue, what we’ve learned is that underlying vein problems deep to the skin can create the pressures that create visible veins in our legs and the spider veins that we see in a vast majority of people who believe that this is just a cosmetic problem.

According to an article in Fox News, “large varicose veins call for more aggressive treatment: endovenous laser ablation.” Although this can be a costly treatment, “it is often covered by insurance, since in rare cases varicose veins can cause blood clots and ulcers.”
