Medicare Rebates for Laser treatment of Varicose Veins.

The Medicare item number for EndoVenous Laser Treatment (ELA, EVLA, EVLT, ELT ) of Varicose Veins in an outpatient clinic is 32520. The precise amount that Medicare will return to patients following ELA is $459.10 not $500 as some patients have been led to believe from recent marketing by other clinics.

The table below is a screenshot of the current MBS table. This has been included to help clear recent confusion about the amount medicare will rebate to patients for this procedure.
