Varicose Veins FAQ

Do you have varicose or spider veins? Is there a difference between the two, and are they serious? What treatments are available at Empire Vein Specialists patient center? 

Get the facts about veins, including why they develop and what you can do about them. Our FAQ page has the information you need to understand your condition, determine whether you need treatment, and find the best vein procedure for you.  

Insurance We Accept

Many people choose not to seek vein treatment because they think procedures are too expensive and insurance won’t cover them. This assumption is often inaccurate and may prevent you from getting the necessary treatment. Spider and varicose vein treatments considered “medically necessary” are often covered, and Empire Vein Specialists accept most insurance plans, including Medicare, IEHP, and PPOs AND HMOs. Discover whether your varicose veins are covered by insurance, which treatments are included, and the plans we currently accept
