Will my insurance cover my procedure?

Northern Michigan Vein Specialists accepts most insurance plans and most procedures are covered by insurance. Patients are, of course responsible for their copays and/or deductibles.

There are 3 main criteria that must be met in order for your procedure/s to be covered:

Symptoms: examples of symptoms are edema/swelling, heaviness, cramping, venous ulcer, discoloration, visible varicose veins

Reflux: we check for reflux by doing an ultrasound and squeezing your calf to make the blood go up toward your heart. If the blood runs back down, that demonstrates reflux.

Stockings: most insurances require a 12 week trial of compression stockings prior to covering vein procedures. If you have not been wearing compression stockings, we will give you a prescription at your first visit.

As stated above, each and every insurance is different. We have posted a white paper on our website that goes into more detail. Click the button below to learn more.
