Many patients suffer from spider veins, but are unsure about the financial burden that spider vein treatment may carry. Our clinic words to provide flexible payment options to ensure that every patient is able to afford spider vein treatment.
Because varicose veins are a medical condition that can pose a serious risk to your health, treatment is often covered by health insurance. Patients whose health insurance covers treatment are only responsible for their out-of-pocket expense, which may include copayments, coinsurance, and deductible. At St. Louis Vein & Endovascular, we work with your insurance company to obtain prior authorizations and ensure you are informed in advance.
To ensure every patient receives the treatment they need, we kindly accept Care Credit. Care Credit is a low-interest credit account that can be used for health expenses. Promotional specials vary, but they frequently offer no interest on services paid in full within 6-12 months, which may be a better option than other financing for many patients.
Credit or Debit Cards
Many patients finance their portion of the procedure using a credit card to break down the burden into feasible monthly payments. Patients on a fixed income following retirement might consider credit options such as credit cards or Care Credit to ensure the monthly payments fit in to their monthly budget.
Patients seeking uncovered (such as cosmetic) services or patients who are uninsured sometimes draw a small loan from their personal bank to pay for the cost of treatment. Personal loans often have much lower interest rates than credit cards and the payment plan is often more flexible.
Cash or Check
To provide the most convenience possible to our patients, we continue to accept cash or check for the cost of treatment. Patients who choose to take out personal loans can have the loan deposited into their account and then simply write a check for the cost of treatment.
