  The Connecticut Center for Advanced Vein Therapy is a comprehensive vein care center offering treatment for all types of veins from spider veins, to bulging varicose veins, to veins with complications such as leg ulcers.  Director of The Vein Center is Duncan J. Belcher, MD and for the next few months he be answering 
Duncan J. Belcher, MD
the most commonly asked questions concerning varicose veins and their treatment. 
 Will treatment be covered by my insurance?
 Coverage of vein treatment depends upon
 your insurance, the type of veins that are
 being treated and the course of treatment
 that is planned.  Veins that are painful and
 cause medical problems for patients are
 usually covered by insurance.  Typically, the
 small purple spider veins are considered
 cosmetic and are not covered by insurance.
 We submit all the necessary documentation to
 your insurance company and you will know
 prior to any procedure what is covered by your plan.
The Connecticut Center for Advanced Vein Therapy (CCAVT) is located in the Middlebury office of Diagnostic Radiology Associates at The Turnpike Office Park, 1579 Straits Turnpike.  Consultations with Dr. Belcher and Dr. Eric Hyson are available by calling CCAVT at 203-758-1980.
