- Is treatment covered by my insurance?
Endovenous radio-frequency obliteration of the saphenous vein, also known as the VNUS Closure procedure, can be performed instead of vein stripping in appropriate patients. As an alternative to conventional surgery, the Closure™ procedure has the broadest and most complete insurance coverage available.
As with most therapeutic procedures, eligibility of reimbursement coverage is based on established medical necessity. Patients should consult their physician or contact their carrier for the specific requirements under their plan.
