My paperwork was faxed over to the insurance company for approval. Does anyone have insurance with this insurance company? If so, what is or was your experience for approval? How long did you have to wait for an answer?

Well, I am still waiting on my date! I am getting frustrated again. It took over two weeks from the time I had completed the required steps before my insurance paperwork was turned in for approval. The insurance approved my surgery on Nov 1st and I was told I would have a date last week and to call on Friday if I had not heard anything. So I called on Friday and was told they will call me when they have my date. It is now the12th of Nov. No date and no call! Almost 4 weeks have been wasted. I understand they are busy, but this is ridiculous.
