Kihei, Maui, HI. Vein Clinics of Hawaii announces an article that discusses a common question patients have – whether their varicose vein treatment will be covered by their health insurer. According to these Hawaii vein specialists, this question is a complex one that almost always requires an individual answer, depending on the individual’s medical condition and the insurer, but often the answer is “Yes.”
According to Dr. Randall S. Juleff, medical director of one of the best Maui vein treatment centers, “Varicose veins are most often caused by a disease called chronic venous insufficiency or CVI, which not only causes unattractive swollen veins, but also causes numerous dangerous side effects, and can increase your risk of heart attack, stroke, and diabetes. If we can describe your condition so that your insurance company sees that varicose vein removal may prevent the need for more expensive treatment in the future, there is an excellent chance they will cover your vein removal treatment.”
The Maui vein treatment center also reminds patients that because most varicose vein treatment is provided on an outpatient basis in their comfortable offices, no matter who pays for the treatment there will be no additional charges incurred by long stays in a hospital or wages lost during “recovery time.” To learn more about varicose vein treatment, visit the clinic’s website.
Varicose Vein Treatment Options
Varicose veins and spider veins are quite common afflictions in the United States, affecting up to 30 million people. While women tend to suffer from vein disease more frequently than men, both sexes can be afflicted. Spider veins are usually smaller, web-like veins that might have a tangled appearance, while varicose veins are usually larger, twisted, bluish veins that are raised on the skin.
There are several safe and effective treatment options for varicose veins and spider veins, including the Venefit™ procedure, microphlebectomy, and sclerotherapy. All procedures are minimally invasive, meaning they can be performed on an outpatient basis in the doctor’s office. They all help restore both the health and beauty of the legs with minimal discomfort and minimal downtime.
