    5-6 years post op

    I'm 4 year this July. I lost 83 need another 15. Well I been eating bad. Gained 15. My clothes feel tight and I don't like it. It's hard changing eating when your grocery shopper buy junk. I truly believe if I can get a cooking class of health foods I can get back on track. I cook with salt n pepper. Boring!

    Tell me about insurance

    I documented rashes and got rx creams dr visits etc for 18 months. Insurance paid panini removal only. I paid for the upgrade to full tummy tuck. Love the results but the bill after was not what was written and I ended up paying $7k over the insurance payment. Didn't realize this til after surgery.
  5. I had bcbs Oregon. Paid for panni portion but I upgraded to a fdl.

    Tricare and abdomnioplasty

    Any pics yet Mary? I went to pre op today and having hiccups on fees. My ins approved panni and the doctor wants paid up front $7500 with another $2000 after ins pays. The original agreement was $7500 cash then ins reimburse for the coveted portion I get reimbursed. Somewhere a miscommunication. Anyone know how much the normal panni procedure costs?

    Anyone have experience with BCBS-MA?

    I had documented and pics of rashes. They denied prior to pics, but overturned when pics shown. They too will pay panni only. I'm paying for the TT upfront and I'm to be reimbursed after. Makes me think if anyone has had an issue with ins paying for the panni after the patient upgrade.

    Just a pannus removal?

    My ins will pay for panni got my approval letter. Doc wants me to may up front for TT w muscle repair. I will get reimburse whatever the ins pays them. Have you ever heard of ins not paying for the panni portion if I then do a full TT?
