Are my varicose veins a cosmetic problem or a medical condition?
Varicose and spider veins are evidence of underlying vein disease which is considered a medical condition. They tend to be the first stage of abnormal or unhealthy veins. Although it’s a medical condition, insurance companies only cover treatments that are causing symptoms such as pain or swelling, show ultrasound evidence of backwards flow and diseased valves, and cause some form of disruption of your daily activities, work, or exercise. Varicose and spider veins that only cause minor symptoms or are simply unsightly to you are considered cosmetic only and not covered by insurance. At Vanish, we provide cosmetic treatment options in addition to fixing the underlying medical disease and the aesthetic appearance. Your legs will feel better and look better!
