    No requirements????

    I’m revising from sleeve to SIPS and was told by my doctor that I need 6 months medically supervised diet psych evaluation and all the other fun stuff. I called my insurance today and they told me there’s no requirement except I have to go through a different dept. which basically guides you through and make sure you are ready for surgery. I’ve had WLS twice. From band to sleeve and I’ve never heard this before. I have UHC. Has anyone else ever been told that??

    This was so easy it’s almost unbelievable. My insurance literally has no requirements other than the BMI. Under 40 one co-morbidity over 40 you’re good. That’s it! No psych evaluation or 6 month diet. I was told by the insurance if I meet any of those requirements I’m automatically approved and I was! YAY!! Surgery date 7/1. 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

    @SeatleLady they called my insurance again and was told exactly they told me so since I met the BMI requirements she went ahead and scheduled me for June 24th.

    No requirements????

    So I just called my insurance AGAIN for like the hundredth time cause I need to make sure. I was told that no prior authorization is needed and the only requirement other than the BMI is BRS Called BRS and they said the service is actually optional. I’m so confused.

    SIP Surgery

    Thank you!!!

    SIP Surgery

    It’s Stomach Intestinal Pylorus-Sparing surgery and is similar to the duodenal switch. Doesn’t seem to be very common.
  15. Hi everyone, Has anyone had or going to have a sleeve revision? If so re-sleeve or will you revised to gastric bypass?
  16. Was given both options. Told I would lose more weight with the bypass but I also know that’s a little more serious of a surgery than the sleeve.
  17. He said my stomach stretched some. I was sleeved in 2012. Lost about 65lbs and recently gained about half of it bk.

    Back to basics and really doing it!

    Good job Liz210 I drink the same shake but I've never seen the premier protein drink. I'm searching to see where I can purchase it now. [emoji1417][emoji1417]

    Back to basics and really doing it!

    So far so good for me. It's been a struggle trying to get up in the morning to work out but I do it. If I don't feel like going to the gym I do a Leslie Sansone DVD. (My goal is to work my way back up to taebo and yes I still have billy blanks taebo dvds. Lol ) But I try to get in a minimum of 30 minutes everyday. Ive up my protein intake and have started eating breakfast again which I haven't been doing. Also started meal prepping which is a big help aannndddd....I resisted the urge to order out for lunch every time I was asked sooooo super proud of myself there too. [emoji16] Over all I think I'm off to a good start...not great but definitely working my way there and feeling good about it. #onamission[emoji1601]

    Back to basics and really doing it!

    I'm in. I gained almost 30lbs myself and have been beating myself up. It took me a while to realize that doing that won't change anything. Instead I need to accept it and move forward and fix it. I know what I need to do so it's time I stop with the excuses and just do it!
