Elevate Your Leg Health

Compression stockings are engineered to provide graduated pressure, promoting blood flow and reducing the likelihood of further vein disease damage. Compression stockings offer the most conservative treatment option for symptoms associated with varicose veins and are often required to be worn in connection to other vein treatment options. Compression stockings come in various styles and colors, allowing you to embrace your unique style while taking care of your legs.

What are Compression Stockings?

Compression stockings are specialized garments designed to improve blood circulation in the legs and prevent certain vascular issues. They are tight-fitting garments that apply pressure to the legs, gradually decreasing from the ankle towards the thigh. The purpose of this compression is to help the blood vessels work more efficiently, assisting in the return of blood to the heart. Compression stockings may help to reduce the appearance and painful symptoms of varicose veins. The compression stocking generally offers more pressure near the ankles and feet, providing the extra squeeze that promotes blood flow.

Benefits of Compression Stockings

Just like seat belts keep you safe in a car, compression stockings defend your legs from discomfort and serious vascular conditions. Wear them for wellness, not just looks.

Does Insurance Cover the Cost?

Insurance coverages for medical-grade compression stockings greatly vary from one insurance plan to the next. To determine the exact coverage under your insurance patients should contact their insurance's customer service and review their policy.

For those with insurance benefits for compression stockings, you may need to take the prescription you receive during your office visit and purchase them through an authorized provider such as a specialty pharmacy or medical equipment supplier.

Those without benefits can easily purchase compression stockings over the counter. However, not all over-the-counter compression stockings have the same quality, therefore Tepas Vein Center recommends purchasing through MEDI USA. MEDI USA specializes in high-quality medical compression stockings and is a trusted partner of healthcare providers worldwide.
