Got the phone call today! (UHC through HCA hospitals)



Recommended Posts

Got the phone call this morning from the surgeon's office - I'm approved! We submitted around December 14th - I was left pending before the holidays and called this morning and was told STILL PENDING. So I asked if they could escalate it since surgery is Monday - and they did. I called the surgeon's office and told them still no news... asked if they could call too to maybe see if the nurse already had a decision and just hadn't gotten around to keying it in.

They called back about an hour later with yes, you're approved!

UHC through HCA hospitals requirements - 5 years of showing me at a high BMI, 6 month medically supervised diet, BMI > 40 or 35 + with comorbs. Overall, fairly smooth process - which surprised me.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
