Okay so my husband is an over the road truck driver and I'm covered under his insurance now. I had state of Vermont health insurance but now I have WellMark Blue Cross Blue Shield of Iowa I'm guessing because that's where it says that they are out of. Does anyone live in a different state then where their insurance is out of and did it cover the lap band surgery? I started this whole process while I had state health insurance. When I called they said that they do cover bariatric surgery but I'm guessing that they don't understand that I live in Vermont and I'm having it done in New Hampshire. Now on my insurance card it doesn't say a state or anything all it says is Blue Cross Blue Shield Alliance Select and on the bottom it says PPO. I'm just so confused and I'm impatiently waiting for the woman that deals with the insurance at the hospital to call me back to let me know if there's any other requirements and what's going on about it. I talked to her 1 1/2 hours ago but I'm still not sure what's going on and I get impatient very easily lol. Anyone else have to deal with something like this?
