How long does it take your vein practice to get pre-certification? Take our poll (below). Pre-certification, also known as prior-authorization, is the process of getting approval from your health plan before you have any health procedures performed. Getting pre-certification for vein procedures can be a chore. Insurance companies are making the process more difficult and changes to policies can occur during the process. Insurance will pay for medically necessary vein treatment including: endovenous ablation, sclerotherapy, ambulatory stab phlebectomy and ultrasound guided sclerotherapy. This way, you can avoid unnecessary out-of-pocket costs from non-covered or non-precertified services. It also helps us to make sure you’re getting the best care possible, in the best setting possible.
Unfortunately pre-certification has started taking longer and longer to process at most vein centers. Average time for Pre-Certification or Pre-Authorization?
