Varicose Vein Removal Cost
Varicose vein removal cost is on lots of people’s minds, as is whether or not it is covered by insurance. Having enlarged veins can be embarrassing, itchy, and even painful if they are severe enough. For the majority of patients, varicose veins are largely a cosmetic issue as well as slightly uncomfortable, but this is little comfort to most sufferers. If you are considering varicose vein removal, then you are likely also wondering about the costs of such a procedure.
It’s important to note that varicose vein treatment may be covered by insurance. Moreover, as with any medical or cosmetic treatment, varicose vein treatments are tailored to the patient, which makes it difficult to put a set price on the procedure. There are a number of factors that can impact the final cost of a vein removal:
- Removal and Type of Treatment – First and foremost, many treatments do not literally remove the affected vein or veins from the patient’s body though they may effectively eliminate them. With some treatments, like laser or sclerotherapy, the intended outcome is to stop or slow the flow of blood to the area which will cause the veins to become smaller or disappear entirely. Of course, extraction is used in some cases though not as common as it once was. Each option carries its own set of additional variables that each affect the final price.
- Peripheral Costs – In addition to the cost of the treatment itself, several other costs may be associated with varicose vein removal, such as lab fees and medications.
- The Severity of Varicose Veins – As you might expect, minor cases of varicose veins may be less expensive to treat than more severe cases; however, this also goes to treatment type and any other relevant circumstances. Generally speaking, more advanced instances of varicose veins may require more extensive treatments which could affect the final cost.
Follow Up Costs – Like any procedure, follow up appointments and additional treatments may be needed to ensure the best results.
