Nj Bcbs Insurance For Linden Or Roselle Or Even Teacher Need Information



Recommended Posts

Don't know what is going on first they said sleeve is not covered. Then it is covered did all paperwork and it is not covered? Now it is covered I am confused. My employer said " I don't know" Good thing benefit person said she is going to try and find out hopefully monday. My doctor said $60,000 for the sleeve. Seriously, who can pay for that? Omg really, really , really. I thought it was much cheeper. Not including hospital stay. Seriously, Seriously, seriously ! I really trust this doctore but I am going to stay postive. Any information , anyone at all! I am suppose to have surgery July 3rd now my insurance company tells me 4 weeks before surgery they are not sure if it is covered.

:ph34r: :ph34r: :ph34r: You have NJ BCBS? I have the same coverage. Are you government employee? For the price your Dr. quoted you, you may want to seek another surgeon. My insurance covered everything.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
