Insurance Information | Elite Vein Specialists

In previous years, many insurance companies refused to cover endovenous laser ablation as an alternative to surgical stripping and ligation. However, many companies are beginning to see the benefits of this new procedure and have thus begun reimbursing patients for a portion of the treatment cost. Dr. Nicholas Hyde has been performing endovenous laser ablation sine 2001. This treatment has a high long term success rate and requires no downtime or general anesthesia. Dr. Hyde is in-network for all major PPO insurance companies. Our staff will assist you with the approval process.

Most medical insurance companies will reimburse you for a percentage of the treatment cost, provided that your procedure is deemed medically necessary. Medical necessity implies that there is a documented problem of venous insufficiency, as shown through your varicose vein history and Doppler Duplex Ultrasound Scans. Elite Vein Specialists can assist you in dealing with your insurance company, providing the diagnostic and procedure codes for pre-certification. Each insurance company reimburses different amounts for these treatments, and we will work with you to ensure that you receive the largest possible reimbursement.

When dealing with out-of-network providers, do not assume you will be reimbursed for treatment, as this is often not the case. In the event that your insurance company cannot reimburse your treatment, we can accept payment in cash, personal checks, bank debit cards, and major credit cards. Please contact us if you have any specific questions or concerns about payment methods or insurance.

My large ugly varicose veins were gone with one treatment of foam sclerotherapy. I cried because I was so happy that my legs look normal again. I called Dr. Hyde because I was so excited with my results. He and his staff have been just lovely.
