Varicose Vein Laser Therapy at Hedden Plastic Surgery
Major Plans Cover Most EVLT Treatments
Most major insurance plans, including Medicare, provide coverage for Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT®) when the procedure is determined to be a medical necessity. To qualify, patients must demonstrate symptoms of venous reflux disease, including pain, swelling, cramping, ulcers or bleeding. A period of conservative varicose vein therapy may be required prior to EVLT laser therapy, such as a 3- to 6-month trial using compression hose. If symptoms persist, most insurance carriers will cover the EVLT procedure.
The medical office staff at Hedden Plastic Surgery is happy to assist you with obtaining insurance coverage for EVLT treatment for venous reflux disease. We make the process as simple as possible by carefully reviewing all insurance forms and submitting your claim for payment.
Coverage for EVLT is subject to the terms of your individual policy, including any applicable co-payments and deductibles. Please call your insurance carrier if you have any questions about coverage of EVLT under your medical insurance plan.
