Patient Center

Many insurance companies cover the treatment of vein diseases that are associated with substantial pain and other complications. However, individual insurance companies may limit the types of therapy that are covered.

Consult with your insurance company to learn more, or call us at (434) 654-1700 and we will be happy to assist.

Wondering whether your vein care procedure will be covered? Since symptomatic venous disease is a chronic medical condition, much of what we do at Sentara Martha Jefferson Vascular and Vein is covered by insurance. We will work with your individual insurance company to help secure your coverage.

At Sentara Martha Jefferson Vascular and Vein, we believe in all facets of patient care and administration. After all, an informed and educated patient makes better decisions, leading to a trusting relationship. With regard to your medical coverage, before we can submit a potential vein treatment to your insurance for approval, we must gather information to prove that your symptoms are caused by a treatable medical condition that does not respond to conservative care. This information is compiled from an appropriate history and physical examination as well as physiologic venous ultrasound study.

Insurance companies have very strict and differing criteria that must be met to prove medical necessity for insurance authorization. We do not want you to be surprised about your potential personal financial responsibility. We accept most major health insurance providers, including Medicare and Medicaid. Some insurance providers may require you to have a referral to see us. We are here to answer all of your questions related to your insurance coverage and to make your experience at Sentara Martha Jefferson Vascular and Vein comfortable and informative.
