I started my journey in Sept. went to my first visit to surgeon after seminor. The very first visit they called my insurance co and they said it was covered except for 1000.00. So i started making appt with other doctors so i could have my surgery. Did my nutrition classes and all appts the doctors office sch my lapband and 4 days before my surgery they called me and said that the lapband is excluded from my policy. i have talked to the ins co nothing i can do. I have spent alot of money on the other appts that are required for the lapband missed alot of time from work unpaid. I have wrote a letter to the doctors office with no response. I have talked to one of the girls at the office but it didnt get me anywhere. Don't know if there is anything else i can do. It stinks have been so upset about this whole thing.
