Submitted to insurance yesterday



Recommended Posts

The surgeon's office said it could take Anthem BCBS 14 business days to respond. Now I look at my phone every ten minutes to see if I missed a call lol

You can also call BCBS yourself and check with them. When my insurance was submitted surgeon's office said same thing. I called BCBS 2 days later to see if they received it and not only have they received it they had already approved it. Good luck

Same for me, I am calling again Monday bright and early. I am so nervous I could scream. Keep me posted when you hear something. :wacko:

I got somewhat the same answer, they probably have the paperwork, but the Nurse has to review it and it's not in the system. My heart sank to my feet. At least I know that it won't be long, everybody seems to get a response pretty quickly with Anthem. I keep my fingers crossed for you also, it would be funny if we get approved on the same day! :lol:

No I called this morning and was told nothing was received yet. I then called the office and asked did they send it in, told her I called. The office coordinator got mad when I told her I called, she said angrily "Why did you call"? I said because I am the one who's having surgery and it's My Insurance company! She checked her attitude and said she also called and they gave her a verification of receipt, but there is still no authorization yet :(

My office got mad too and said they had it under control and the Nurse at anthem has to do something. We wouldn't be calling if the surgeons office explained what happens. The surgeons office told me that they've done this many times before. I took it as we've done this before and we have it handled. Anthem will keep telling you it's not in the system until apparently the Nurse looks it over. Sounds like the same thing is going on with us. it's day 4 for is, day 15 I'm going off lol

      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!
