Does Medicare cover Varicose Vein treatment? | Medicare Insurance Arizona

Varicose veins are one of the most common ailments affecting older Americans today. Roughly 40 percent of men and 70 percent of women have some form of varicose veins by age 60. If spider telangiectasias and reticular veins are also considered, the prevalence increases to 80 percent of men and 85 percent of women.
Overall, an estimated 40 million Americans have venous insufficiency, yet only 1.9 million seek vein treatment each year. This is a troublesome statistic, as varicose veins can lead to more serious medical issues down the road.

Fortunately, both Original Medicare and Medicare Advantage will cover varicose vein treatments when they are determined to be medically necessary. This determination will be made by your primary care physician before any Medicare plans approve coverage for treatment. Neither of these things are true. Varicose veins can cause serious health complications if left untreated, such as blood clots, or become increasingly swollen or painful over time. Moreover, Medicare will fully cover vein treatment should these symptoms persist, and your doctor decides the procedure is necessary to relieve them.

If you have varicose veins and your legs become overly painful or swollen, discolored or bleed, you should see your primary care doctor immediately.

If you are approaching 65 years old, or are already over 65 and are looking to enroll or change Medicare plans, come see a Medicare professional at Insurance Professionals of Arizona. Our experts can help make sure you find the right coverage for you, and help get those varicose veins finally treated and back on the golf course in no time.
