Payment Options

Our procedures are covered by insurance, including Medicare, 95% of the time. If your plan requires you to meet a deductible or has coinsurance requiring you to pay a percentage of your visits out of pocket, then we offer several options to make those costs affordable and convenient for our patients.

We accept most major credit cards – VISA, Mastercard, Care Credit and American Express – and offer payments plans. Payments can be made in our offices, over the phone with our Administration offices, or even by using our secure, online bill pay service.

A Patient Services Specialist will be assigned to you at the start of the process, and will be your representative for the duration of your treatment. This specialist will assist you with all questions about your appointments, billing and payment options.

Fast Track

We understand that our patients’ lives are hectic and every moment counts. Circulatory Centers offers patients the choice of initial appointments. Patients can choose between a No Charge Consultation (NCC) or go directly to a Diagnostic and Treatment Plan Office Visit. Fast Track allows patients to begin treatment sooner than a NCC.

Pre-authorization:

99% of insurance companies require pre-authorization for vein treatment. Circulatory Centers’ has a dedicated Pre-authorization Department that will review your clinical documentation and request the pre-authorization on your behalf. Your Patient Services Specialist will also assist you through the process. All Insurance Criteria must be met prior to requesting a pre-authorization. Depending on the insurance company, pre-authorizations can take 2 to 12 weeks to process.

Insurance Criteria

All insurance carriers have certain patient criteria that must be met before providing pre-authorization and/or insurance payments. These requirements must be documented in your patient chart before a treatment occurs. Providing your insurance information when you schedule your first appointment will allow Circulatory Centers’ staff to provide you with the specific criteria required by your insurance carrier.

Some insurance plans require that patients TRY the following prior to treatment:

  • Trial use of NSAIDS (Advil or Aleve) to relieve the symptoms like aching, pain or swelling of the legs
  • Trial use of a compression stocking
  • Trial of elevation of the legs
  • *these trials are not a cure – they are a POSSIBLE AND TEMPORARY solution to the symptoms of venous disease.

    In addition, if Venous Disease is suspected and treatment is required, insurance carriers will require the following information from your diagnostic testing and office visit/treatment plan:

  • Minimum vein size
  • Presence of valve reflux inside the vein
  • Major Insurance Plan Participation

    We take all insurance plans, and we participate in many major plans in the communities we serve. If you don’t see your insurance carrier listed below, call us at 800-VARICOSE to discuss your insurance coverage.
