Jtickle.....how long was the process for u from first seminar to approval for surgery

I started on March 3rd of this year and was submitted to insurance in mid April, found out I was approved on April 29. They actually submitted my paperwork a little late because the insurance coordinator was gone for a week.

I have UHC thru my husbands company, and am hoping for a quick approval. I know that it is covered on his insurance and I meet the criteria. they do require a 6 month doctor supervised weight program, but I have been seeing a doctor in KY every other month since last April, so I am hopeful doing that and the 3 months with Dr. Custer that they will approve it and not make me do an additional 3 months. I really want the surgery before the end of this year, so fingers crossed please.

Ok, not trying to be a dummy here, but everyone has signed off on approving me, the psych. doctor, the insurance case manager, the bariatric case manager, they all talk like I'm approved, I know everything has been submitted to the insurance company, but all professionals I talk with at the bariatric center act like its a go, just a matter of setting a surgery date, what do they know that I don't know, no one has contacted me telling me everything is approved, signed off on. Please anyone with any input, advice, etc, I don't know what to expect, if I should get excited or what, thanks. I have United Healthcare Plus

I have United Medicare Complete. I have done all my pre-op checks and now they are submitting my case to insurance. I don't know how long that will take. I'm still in the wait and see game.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
