Is My Vein Treatment Covered by Insurance?


It is covered by Medicare if it is medically necessary and a lot of other private insurances are starting to cover it period. However if we get you in and get you examined here at Alpha Vein Clinic Las Vegas, almost all procedures we do are covered by insurance and are deemed medically necessary. We do have a procedure that we do offer in our Las Vegas office that is just cosmetic and that is Sclerotherapy, which is not covered by insurance. However we have many options available as far as price and payment goes.


The most recent innovation in the treatment of varicose veins is the use of medical glue known as VenaSeal (cyanoacrylate) to physically shut down and seal the main defected vein. VenaSeal adhesive (GLUE), previously known as “Sapheon Glue” is a safe medical grade glue that is used to shut the main Saphenous Vein in the thigh. Once the vein has been glued shut, it will undergo a process of hardening and will be gradually absorbed by the body. The procedure involves the placement of a very small amount of VenaSeal medical glue into the vein through a small catheter. Once the affected vein is closed, blood is immediately re-routed through other healthy veins in the leg. Unlike other treatments, VenaSeal does not require a Regional Nerve Block or large volumes of anesthesia. Furthermore there are no pre-procedure drugs involved and patients can return to their normal activities right after the treatment. Unlike heat-based procedures such as Endovenous Laser or Radiofrequency Ablation, with VenaSeal there is no risk of skin burns or nerve damage. VenaSeal does not require any immediate post-treatment pain medication or uncomfortable compression stockings.

For the last 10 years laser and radiofrequency took over. Now there is the VenaSeal vein treatment. The VenaSeal procedure which is now covered by Medicare, is most certainly the future of varicose vein treatment.
