Insurance company regulation are rediculous. Wish I had $14k so that I could just pay out of pocket.

I was denied. But decided that my health and future were worth it. My norther passed away and I received a small inheritance. So I took the money and spent it on myself. I ended up with a gallbladder removal and a hiatal hernia repair so maybe I'll get lucky and some will be covered.

My pcp was in favor of the surgery for health reasons, but had nothing to do with the acceptance. Wish she could have helped. Oh well. I'm saving lots of money on food!

I understand. Ihad to use a service called "care credit" online to finance it, it is like an awful credit card but pays bills for bariatric/cosmetic/in-covered services. I know it is awful going into debt, but i feel I dont really have a choice. I think u are doing well with knowing what u can loose without bmi being an insurance factor. They sure do make it hard.

I would try to finance it however I have paid 400 dollars a month to this insurance for about 11 years now.... I refuse to let it be a waste. I will attempt to jump through the hoops. If they deny I will try a different route may take longer. But I am determined

That's why i'm going to Dr Kelly. I'm borderline bmi and if I jump thru all their hoops I will be too low and they will deny. Going into debt for this but for once i'm putting me first ahead of visa, mastercard car payments, hubby hobbies etc. good luck

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
