This Solution To Varicose Veins Might Be Covered By Your Insurance
I've been a mom for years, and my kids are truly my world. When you're raising kids, you pay attention to every bump on their heads, and each teeny cut on their knees. But when it comes to yourself, your health tends to take a back seat.
Now that my three are a bit older, I've started to put myself first a little more. I started gardening and growing my own veggies to eat healthier, and taking yoga classes to help my bad back. One thing that I've always just endured was the varicose veins in my legs. They've been bothering me for close to 10 years, but have gotten significantly worse in the last 18 months. I never wear shorts (not even in the summer!), and while I've been massively insecure about them, I never thought of them as anything more than a cosmetic issue.
Over the last year and a half, I've had discomfort, swelling, and itching, even twinges of pain here and there. But I never thought to have them looked at. It wasn't until my Saturday morning yoga class when I was chatting with this woman named Sue about how she'd had her varicose veins treated only three days earlier. Sue went locally to Metro Vein Centers and they'd helped her get rid of her varicose veins in just a few sessions. It sounded great, but what really caught my attention was that her insurance covered the whole thing!
Metro Vein Centers is a chain of clinics that performs procedures to remove spider veins and varicose veins. Apparently, once varicose veins become chronic they're classified as a clinical disease, so they can be covered by your health insurance.
The procedures are minimally invasive, and in most cases, you can go back to work the same day. I called them immediately and spoke to one of their representatives to see if I'd qualify. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that I didn't need a referral from my physician. I could go into Metro Vein Centers and have a free face-to-face consultation with a certified vein expert who would come up with a personalized treatment plan just for me.
I was still nervous about the process, so I called Sue who assured me that all procedures are conducted by trained experts. She said they use a local anesthetic so the pain was minimal. Once she left the clinic, she was able to go about her day as normal. My consultation at Metro Vein Centers was quick and easy. My doctor assured me that they have a 99% success rate and gave me a great breakdown of my treatment plan.
The procedure was over before I knew it and I was out tending to my roses the next morning! I can't believe I waited so long to have my varicose veins treated. I no longer feel those twinges or ashamed about my legs. I even wear shorts! Metro Vein Centers made the whole process so easy from start to finish. I'm finally pain-free and feeling more confident than ever!
