Sclerotherapy costs in Los Angeles
Sclerotherapy entails professional and medicine fees. I would write to your insurance's medical director to discuss your concerns.
To be honest in 20 years we have never broken down the bill as you are stating. We usually do the sclerotherapy and include the medication into the cost of the procedure.
Cost of sclerotherapy
If I do a closure procedure (EVLT) then we request sclerotherapy from the insurance companies as part of the entire vein care. Sclerotherapy by itself, however, in my practice is a cash procedure since it is purely cosmetic. We do not bill medicine fees.
