How Much Does Varicose Vein Treatment Cost? And Other Questions About Vein Treatments

How much does varicose vein treatment cost?

If you’re wondering how much varicose vein treatments cost, you probably have an upcoming appointment at a vein treatment center in NYC. Or perhaps you have varicose veins and are wondering if it’s worth consulting vein doctors about varicose vein removal in NYC.

Well, before we discuss the cost of varicose vein removal, it’s important to emphasize that varicose vein treatments are medically necessary procedures. If you have varicose veins, you probably also have underlying chronic venous insufficiency, a circulatory disorder that can lead to severe complications if left untreated. As such, we encourage you to contact reliable vein treatment clinics in NYC to explore your treatment options.

The cost of varicose vein treatment is extremely difficult to generalize because it depends on numerous factors. Varicose veins are dense blood vessels that protrude out of the skin’s surfaces, looking like large tree trunks or tangled and knotted ropes. They’re usually symptomatic of chronic venous insufficiency, which should also be addressed during your vein treatment process. Furthermore, varicose vein treatments can be performed using multiple treatments.


If you have varicose veins, please schedule an appointment at our state-of-the-art vein treatment centers in New York. We provide free insurance verification — our insurance team will ask for your details, verify them, work out the terms and conditions, and help you maximize your insurance coverage. Furthermore, we follow a strict “no surprise billing” policy, so you’ll receive a complete breakdown of your vein treatment costs before the procedure.

Which factors influence the cost of varicose vein treatments in NYC?

  • Symptoms: Varicose veins can be accompanied by numerous other symptoms of venous insufficiency, such as leg heaviness, restless leg syndrome, frequent leg cramps, and spider veins. The cost of your varicose vein treatment will depend on how many other symptoms you have and their individual treatments.
  • Location & Size: When it comes to varicose vein removal, the cost of the entire procedure also depends on the number of varicose veins, their size, and their locations on your body. Different treatment areas may necessitate different procedures, and the size and number of varicose veins will determine the amount of medication used.
  • Anesthesia: Minimally invasive spider vein and varicose vein treatments are usually performed under local anesthesia, with or without sedation. The cost of your vein treatment will also depend on the anesthesia cost and whether you opt for intravenous or oral sedation.
  • Diagnosis: As mentioned previously, varicose veins are often caused by chronic venous insufficiency, the root cause of most vein problems. If you don’t have vein disease, the vein doctor will simply remove the superficial varicose veins. But if you have chronic venous insufficiency, the vein doctor will also have to address underlying vein disease.
  • Sessions: If you have a large number of varicose veins and spider veins, your entire treatment might be divided between two or more sessions. The overall cost of your vein treatment will also depend on the number of sessions.
  • Insurance Coverage: Your out-of-pocket varicose vein treatment cost will depend on whether you’re eligible for insurance coverage. Furthermore, different vein treatments are eligible for different levels of coverage from different insurance providers. As such, these factors will determine how much you have to pay out-of-pocket.

Is varicose vein removal covered by insurance?

Varicose vein removal is usually covered by most insurance providers because it’s considered to be a “medically necessary” procedure. However, to meet that requirement of medical necessity, you must prove that you have underlying chronic venous insufficiency and that the varicose veins are impacting your daily life. Our vein doctors will perform thorough ultrasound scans to visualize the blood flow in your leg veins, thus producing visual evidence of chronic venous insufficiency to support your insurance claim.

Our insurance team also works out the terms and conditions of your insurance coverage to determine if you need to meet any other conditions to receive coverage, such as wearing compression stockings for a few weeks or months before the procedure. Whatever the terms might be, our team will actively work to minimize your out-of-pocket financial burden. We also provide free insurance verification before your first appointment — so you can determine if you’re eligible for insurance coverage even before your appointment.

Does insurance cover spider vein removal?

Varicose veins can significantly affect your daily life because of leg heaviness, restless leg syndrome, frequent leg cramps, and other symptoms, and they’re usually caused by chronic venous insufficiency. As such, insurance coverage for varicose vein treatments is fairly certain. However, insurance coverage for spider vein removal is a little more tricky. Spider veins are dense clusters of blood vessels visible just underneath the skin’s surface. Unlike varicose veins, they don’t bulge out of the skin or cause severe discomfort, so they’re mostly considered to be cosmetic problems.

If you seek spider vein treatment to remove the visible spider veins, you might not receive insurance coverage. However, if your vein doctor can show that your spider veins are symptomatic of vein disease, you may receive insurance coverage. That’s why our vein doctors always perform thorough ultrasound scans to identify the root cause of spider veins and determine if you have chronic venous insufficiency. If so, we can possibly extend coverage to your spider vein treatment. Please talk to our vein doctors in NYC to explore your spider vein treatment options.
