COST OF TREATMENT

The cost of treatment for varicose veins varies depending on the severity of the condition. This can only be estimated after an assessment with a veins specialist. Costs for surgery also vary depending on the hospital.

We provide full and accurate estimates of cost after clinical assessment and all patients have the opportunity to consider whether they wish to proceed with treatment before committing to any financial obligation.

INSURED PATIENTS

The major insurers (AXA, Aviva, WPA, Simply Health, Pru Health etc) will normally cover the full cost of assessment and treatment. The exception to this is BUPA who will reimburse patients a variable proportion of the cost depending on the policy.
