  2. Lovi... I would totally appreciate that information... I can send u my email. Ty!
  3. I recently went to my first seminar and meeting with my Doctor and they checked out my insurance which is BCBS of Texas. They told me that my policy does cover the surgery but because it's a new policy that I must wait till Jan 2014 to have the surgery. Was completely bummed but I'm going to be working with my doctor to get everything I need done during this time and take it from there.

    Good News Bad News

    Went to my seminar and met with the doctor and it all went very well. I'm a great candidate for the surgery but.... Good news is my insurance company; BCBS of Texas and my policy covers the surgery, bad news is I have to wait a year to do it as its a new insurance policy. Sigh...
  6. PDX... Great response and info! Ty

    BCBS of Texas

    I've been thinking of getting this surgery for some time now. I am 5'1 and 228 lbs with a bmi of 43.1. I am nervous about the whole "getting approved" thing, but ready to try! Not quite sure how BCBS of Texas is with WLS as we are new to the plan. What's the first steps to all this?

    Thanks, Need! U rawk!
  16. There is no doubt that this is a big decision and it sounds like you have thought it out thoroughly. I, myself and currently considering the gastric sleeve. I'm in that stage where I've done tons of research and just weighing the pros and cons of actually doing it. Good luck with your surgery and I look forward to your updates.
  17. You look great! Keep it up!
  18. That's crazy... I just moved from the woodlands and live now in Corpus!
