Insurance Coverage at Aluna Centers

Los Angeles | Beverly Hills | Encino | Glendale California

At Aluna Vein Centers, we proudly offer a wide range of affordable cosmetic, laser, and vein treatments and procedures at our four state-of-the-art offices in Beverly Hills, Encino, and Glendale. Whether you’re considering one of our Los Angeles non-surgical cosmetic procedures or need varicose vein treatment, we never want financial roadblocks to stop you from receiving the treatment you need. That’s why we accept most PPOs and Medicare insurances for medically necessary procedures.

About Medically Necessary Procedures

Health insurance companies usually cover treatments and procedures they deem “medically necessary”. Signs and symptoms of venous insufficiency, peripheral vascular disease, ultrasound results, and three to six months of conservative measures are typically enough to qualify for insurance coverage in the diagnostic stages.

Whether your treatment is covered is ultimately dependent upon the type of insurance you have. To help us determine if your treatment will be covered, please have your insurance card readily available while scheduling your appointment.

Prior Authorizations

Many insurance companies require that a “prior authorization” request be sent in and approved before they will cover the treatment. Approval for treatment coverage depends largely on  medical necessary which include doctor complete consultation and ultrasound results, but also on the insurance company’s definition of “medically necessary”.

Once your insurance company has determined that you qualify for coverage, we’ll call you to set up your treatment. Because a prior authorization typically comes with an expiration date, it’s important that you receive the treatment you need while it’s still approved.
Note: Getting approved for treatment coverage doesn’t always mean that you aren’t required to pay anything. You may still have monetary responsibility for certain procedures.

  • Spider vein treatment
