WHICH INSURANCE COMPANIES ARE YOU IN-NETWORK WITH?
We are currently in-network with WPS, Humana, United Health Care, Cigna, Healtheos/Multiplan, Health Payment Systems (HPS), Trilogy, Medicare/Medicaid, Molina, Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield and UMR. For other insurance plans, we can assist you in going out-of-network, or in using cash or other payment mechanisms for your vein procedure depending on your needs. We can order ultrasound examinations in your network to make it more cost effective prior to your procedure.
We are an independent group that values taking care of patients as family. We do not charge facility fees that are common at surgery centers and large hospital facilities. We want to make it easy for you to take care of your veins. Around the time of your consultation, we can evaluate your insurance coverage and give you a better understanding of the process.
ARE THESE PROCEDURES PAINFUL?
The procedures involve several needle stings with a small guage needle which most people tolerate well. The fluid put in to compress and insulate the vein (tumescent) can cause a pressure sensation which again is tolerated well. Most people feel the procedure is much easier to tolerate than they had expected.
HOW LONG WILL MY PROCEDURE TAKE?
We will design a treatment plan and set of procedures right for you. Depending on the procedures and extent of your disease will determine the time needed to treat you. Usually procedure time are around 1 hour, however, you can expect to be at the office for 2 – 2 ½ hours.
