THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., April 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Laser vein removal offers patients fast relief without paying out of pocket. Many people are unaware that varicose veins are not only unsightly; they also pose a serious risk to a person's health. The bulging, twisting veins become deformed due to faulty valves in the large leg veins. Since the valves are not strong enough to keep the blood flowing against gravity back to the heart, the blood pools in the veins of the lower extremities, causing the bulging appearance. Since the blood is not being carried throughout the body it becomes deoxygenated, causing the dark blue color of varicose veins. Because the blood cannot circulate throughout the body, people with varicose veins are at a high risk for blood clots that can lead to deadly strokes.
Luckily for people suffering from varicose veins, laser vein removal treatments are covered by most insurance. To find out whether or not your insurance covers varicose vein removal, call them to get details on your coverage, deductible and health plan. Also, even if the procedure is not covered by your regular health insurance, check with your employer if you have a health savings account. A health savings account is a yearly health-related allowance that can be automatically deducted from a person's pre-tax salary, and is a great way to cover medical procedures that insurance would not otherwise reimburse you for. Many large employers even match their employees' yearly contribution to a health savings account; essentially, your employer may be able to help pay for your varicose vein laser treatments.
