My insurance came back with an answer quickly. Submitted on a Tuesday and approved by Friday morning. I hope yours is as fast.

Thank you all!

Per my coordinator my insurance is relatively quick to approve and rarely denies so we shall see!

Crossing fingers and toes for you!

Mine was submitted early December. I toyed with the idea of calling before the Holidays, then decided to wait in case it was bad news. (Did I mention my middle name is Ostrich?) Yesterday I emailed my case manager to see if the doctor's office had received approval. Figured it would be faster to ask her than wait forever on hold with the insurance company.

The lovely woman phoned my carrier and waited for over 40 minutes to talk to someone! Then phoned to tell me I was approved. Talk about above and beyond the call of duty! I'd have phoned if she'd emailed back and said they hadn't heard yet.

I can relate! I can be an ostrich also....I'm tempted to call my insurance company today but thought well, surgery is not until February so I can wait for it....lol

Nurse_Lenora, I'm kinda in the same boat: finished all the pre-op screenings and nutrition classes last month (Dec.2015). Now I'm waiting on insurance approval. My concern is that since it is a new year, I have to start all over again with the deductible & our-of-pocket cost before my insurance will pay 100%. Once I get approval, I'm afraid I won't be able to pay all that before I can get the surgery, & I'll have to do all the pre-op screenings again. I wish I would've started the process earlier so that I could've had surgery before Dec. 31st.

      My 3 babies and my little "niece". Took on a babysitting job this past weekend. She is super tiny compared to my 3 biggies. Sitting on command for treat-os!
       
      Pre-op Liquid - Day 2 
      It was very hard today...I'm feeling some type of way from not eating the meals I was supposed to before the pre-op diet. My sister got stuck in Dallas a week before my diet and we were supposed to go on a nice dinner, but that never happened. I have super bad dry mouth and bathroom breaks are more frequent.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
