Vein disease is a medical issue that can lead to serious health consequences. Because of this, most insurance companies do cover the treatment of varicose veins. Many insurance companies, like physicians, believe that the treatment of varicose veins is a necessity and should be taken care of immediately.
About 50 to 55% of American women and 40 to 45% of American men suffer from some form of vein problem. Varicose veins affect one out of two people age 50 and older and other vein problems may affect pregnant women or those people who spend a long portion of time of their feet.
The good news is that most vein diseases are easily treated. Once your symptoms have been properly diagnosed by a specialist, your condition can be treated on an outpatient basis by one of several procedures approved, and covered, by most insurance companies.
