After a long, hot summer of wearing capris instead of shorts, you may feel relieved to be able to throw on some jeans as fall hits. With the hot weather and summer vacations just about behind us, it’s the perfect time for anyone suffering with varicose veins or spider veins to seek vein specialist options and begin treatment.
Vein treatment – especially, for spider veins- often requires a series of treatments spaced several weeks apart. Beginning vein treatment during the end of the summer sets you up for recovery during the cooler months. Our vein patients that must wear compression hose for a period of time especially appreciate the cooler weather. Unfortunately, these therapies, like compression hose, alone are not typically able to provide permanent relief from varicose veins or their symptoms. That’s why after you’ve completed the necessary number of weeks, your insurance company will most likely give you the go-ahead for lasting treatment.
Fall is, also, often that wonderful time of year when many patients have met their annual insurance deductible, so healthcare procedures become require a much lower out-of-pocket responsibility from the patient. We also see an increase in the number of patients tapping into their Flexible Spending Accounts or Healthcare Savings Accounts. Although remaining funds in some of those funds may roll over to the following year, not all will, so make sure and check the status of your own account.
