Insurance May Cover Those Veins So You Don't
Free Screening

Are Your Veins Covered?

Insurance typically covers vein treatments and ultrasounds (to diagnose venous issues) related to an underlying medical condition.  Necessity is dictated by the discovery of symptomatic venous reflux during your Color Doppler Ultrasound, which occurs during your new patient appointment or one of our monthly free vein screenings.

Consult with Chicago’s hometown vein specialists. We work with most major insurance companies and can assist you with any questions you may have regarding insurance. It’s certainly something you should know before you consider treatment.

When you schedule your initial appointment we can perform a complimentary benefits check on your behalf prior to any procedure being performed. Depending on your insurance provider, there could be a period of conservative therapy required before we can proceed with treatment and we are happy to guide you through this process.

On this page, you can find a comprehensive list of the different insurance companies for which Chicago Vein Institute is in-network and accepting new patients now.
