Tricare Waiting Approval How Long?



Recommended Posts

I had to have documentation of attempted weight loss.. Weight recorded.. And blood pressure recorded with my pcm.. he also wrote tricare a letter..I started the process in May and got banded yesterday. Approval once submitted only took 3 days but the letter going to my surgeon took a little over a week. Good luck with everything

Thanks! I had surgery yesterday at 0715 and was released at 1400. I am sore and didn't have any gas pains except for today and man they are rough.. Not hungry at all and can take my liquids well :)

Hi Sam!
For me the process was pretty quick even with the many appointments Tricare required of me. I started the paperwork towards the end of March and had surgery 8/18.
I had something to do with every week. My longest period of waiting was 3 weeks and that was for insurance final approval.
Good luck to you!
