Do health insurance plans cover sclerotherapy?

ANSWER

Insurance coverage for sclerotherapy varies. If your varicose veins are causing medical problems, your insurance may offer reimbursement. If you want sclerotherapy for cosmetic purposes only, your insurance carrier most likely will not provide coverage.

If you have questions, call your insurance company. Your insurance company may request a letter from your doctor concerning the nature of your treatment and medical necessity.
