As a health insurance broker I’m often asked whether the varicose vein treatment is available on a health insurance policy. This is a really grey area. Treatment of varicose veins has a very specific criteria on health insurance policies.
Treatment is not available because you believe your veins look unsightly. Health insurance will not cover treatment for conditions for cosmetic reasons.
If your consultant believes you need to have treatment for your varicose veins for medical reasons then your insurer will review the claim for you and assess it on a case by case basis.
