Varicose Veins Insurance
Varicose veins often appear as large or bulging veins on the surface of the leg. In some cases, varicose veins can cause patients to experience an itching sensation on the site of the legs, aching or muscle cramping.
At The Private Clinic, we offer a variety of options to help reduce the appearance of varicose veins and improve the symptoms of them too. These treatments include; EVLA, VenaSeal, Phlebectomy and Foam Sclerotherapy. We do not offer or recommend vein stripping for the treatment of varicose veins. The National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) suggests that the stripping method should no longer be used. We instead favour the NICE gold standard treatment of EVLA. We believe we offer the best options to treat varicose veins and recommend booking a consultation with one of our expert Varicose Vein Consultant vascular surgeons.
EVLA Treatment for Varicose Veins – Endovenous Laser Ablation
Cost restrictions of the NHS mean that getting NHS treatment for Varicose Veins is becoming limited. A grading system is used to determine how serious your symptoms are and in most cases, non-surgical options such as compression stockings are often advised instead.
Getting insurance funding for varicose vein treatment is also becoming very difficult with many insurers with many only agreeing to pay out for patients who are experiencing troublesome symptoms and not getting them removed purely for cosmetic reasons.
Private Health Insurers include
- BUPA International
- Simply Health
- Health Now
- Health On-Line
