February Surgery ? in PRE-Operation Weight Loss Surgery Q&A Posted February 1, 2020 On 1/28/2020 at 6:47 PM, myholidayboyz said: My paperwork was submitted to my insurance 1/21/2020. On 1/23/2020 I got an email from my insurance letting me know I was approved. My surgeons office just got the paperwork today. I was told when they submitted my paperwork to insurance that they have 15 days to approve. It took Humana less than a week. Good luck!
