<p>I had a pre-approval (Dec 2009).&nbsp; Did everything that was required of me.&nbsp; 3 days before surgery when they sent in all the info for my final approval I got denied.&nbsp; My insurance was changing at the end of the month so did not have time to appeal.&nbsp;Which just made me more depressed and I gained more weight.&nbsp; This coming year (Jan 2011) I have decided to put it on my cafeteria plan at work.&nbsp; $13,000 is a lot of money for me and my husband but my wonderful husband said not matter what we can make it.&nbsp; Even if it means cutting back on several things.&nbsp;</p>
<p>FINALLY DID IT!&nbsp; Self-Paid and GOT my surgery January 11, 2012....&nbsp;</p>
