Pre-determination and billing
Following your patient’s history, physical exam and duplex ultrasound study, all of the findings from the visit will be sent to the patient’s insurance company for pre-determination of benefits under the patient’s insurance policy.
Our pre-determinations team will be your patient’s advocate with their insurance company as we seek to gain approval for the treatment. Additionally, we follow up by phone with them regarding the status of the request for approval.
Once the patient begins treatment, we will file charges directly to their insurance company. Your patient will only pay what is required by their plan which is typically co-pay, co-insurance and deductible.
Medical compression hose wear:
Many patients are required to wear compression stockings for a minimum of six weeks before the insurance will agree to cover any varicose vein treatment procedures. Therefore, we recommend that patients begin compression stocking wear as early as possible in the evaluation process. It is important that graduated compression stockings be properly fitted and that they conform to the high standard of prescription strength compression (30-40mm Hg) in order to meet this insurance requirement.
If it is possible to begin compression hose wear at the time that the provider refers the patient to Decatur Vein Clinic for treatment, this will speed up the patient’s insurance approval process. For your convenience, all of our offices can fit your patient for compression hose wear upon your written prescription for compression stockings.
