Billing and Insurance
Because the Venous procedure we do here at the Advanced Vein Clinic is treating the medical cause of varicose veins, most insurance are covering this procedure. A lot of physicians only treat the veins cosmetically; we treat the source of the varicose veins. Some insurance require preauthorization-but we take care of that. No need for you to worry about anything except getting your legs better.
Usually one Diagnostic Ultrasound per leg is all you need to begin a treatment plan, THIS IS GENERALLY COVERED EVEN IF PROCEDURES END UP BEING CONSIDERED NOT MEDICALLY NECESSARY.
Depending on your insurance company’s guidelines you are recommended to have one after each treatment and every six months to monitor your progress, as vein disease is chronic and progressive. We strive to please our patients and earn customer satisfaction.

All Highmark Blue Cross and Blue Shield (BCBS)
Out of State Blue Card Program
United Health Care
United Mine Workers, UMR
NOT currently accepted, out of network. Patients can pay out of pocket,
