IF I ONLY NEED THREAD VEIN TREATMENT WOULD THAT BE COVERED BY INSURANCE OR IS THIS JUST CONSIDERED COSMETIC?
Unfortuantley this is hard to advise as it can depend on a few factors including:
- Who your insurer is
- Your particular policy with them
- Whether there is an underlying medical cause for the veins
You would need to contact them directly for advise. They'll likely ask you to describe the veins and any symptoms you're experiencing from them.
Some insurers will need you to get GP referral before they'll authorise a consultation.
Please call our patient adivsory team if you'd like any further advice. We'll be able to advise regarding our experiences with your insurer and whether they are likely or unlikely to cover treatment.
