Finally have a case number today. I will call back on Thursday or I may call them next Monday to see my status. they say its in review now do I don't even think they have looked at it yet
I am still waiting on them, noone at Anthem is calling me back. I am beyond upset. Smoke is coming out of my ears. I am about to go corporate.

Today I am going to be on my surgeon's office and my insurance. I am blowing the lines up.

They call a number and get a case started then from there they fax im the paperwork.
Call them and make sure they have received your paperwork. Each day for a week Anthem had nothing about me.
I thought I was finally on the path to getting an answer from Anthem. I called yesterday and all the work that my surgeon's office had done was in vain. My surgeon's office submitted paperwork to them on 01/23, I called to see if they received it and no that hadn't. I call everyday and still no paperwork. I decided to conference the surgeon's office and Anthem on the phone and they give another number to build a case. My surgeon's office has done everything that they have said. I called on yesterday 02/01 and they say the wrong person input my case and that my case was canceled and now my surgeon's office has to get with someone else. This is ridiculous. I have talked to several people and had to even get a sup involved. My surgeon's office was closed on yesterday because they are closed on Friday so Monday we are back on it. Before you know I will have probably talked to everyone at BCBS because I will call everyday until I get some answers. Anyone with a similar BCBS issue?
Oh and to add, the pre-cert dept input a case for me and they shouldn't have. So they say that the rep shouldn't have put it in, it needed to go to a nurse to input so my case was canceled because the wrong person input my information in.
BCBS is something else. I had to speak to a supervisor on yesterday because they don't even have my paperwork after its been faxed several times. My surgeons office was closed on yesterday so if they need me to, I will call BCBS every single day. Each time my surgeon's office calls they give her a fax number, she faxes it and it always the wrong dept, this is crazy.
My paperwork has been faxed to Anthem two times and they still don't have my stuff in the system. The wrong dept got a hold of my fax and didn't get it to the correct dept so now once they approve me, I want the next available date. I may go with the end of February if it is available.

This is just horrible. Hoping for the best.

It could be two things going on. One is that they truly don't have the paperwork another is that once they send the paperwork it must be going to another dept then that dept may need to look it over. My stuff was submitted on last Wed around the afternoon timeframe. I have heard that it can take 15 business days so all is not lost yet for us. I will call every other day to check on it though. I am calling the pre-cert dept. Which dept are you calling?
Someone told me that they had to wait the full 15 days before approval. This is day 6 of 15 today. This is in business days. Seems like it takes a whole month after you've submitted or at least just about. I guess I should be glad that I am closer than when I started.
