    March 13th!!! Finally!

    I'm having Rny March 28. I am happy but terrified at the same time.
  2. My paperwork was submitted December 21, 2016 for approval. Jan 3rd 2017 I called and found out I was denied, because I don't meet the New guidelines for 2017. I am really upset about it ????. I don't think it's fair. Now I need 2yrs bmi >35 w co mobilities 40> w out co mobilities. 90 days NUT , psych eval. I have NUT class and psych eval but I need 1full year with BMI >40. Has this ever happened to anyone. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks Sent from my SM-J700T using the BariatricPal App
  3. I pray that everything workout , they will approve it. Thank you for the advice. Pray for me.
  4. Hi hireath, BCBS said they want me to have BMI OF 40 for a full 2 years , 90 days NUT class and psych eval ect Jan 2015 my BMI was 35-38 No co mobilities. Nov 2015 my BMI was 40. No co mobilities. 2016 my BMI is > 40 w sleep apnea and Gerd I have 90 days of NUT class and psych eval . I guess they want me to wait until Nov 2017 before they will approve it. I am waiting for the denial letter i am going to appeal. My plan B is to self pay for VSG. Any advice ? Should I wait until November or self pay for VSG ?, I have to decide if they don't approve it.
