Approved! Washington State Apple Health (Molina Medicaid)



Recommended Posts

I did the same thing under my Drs advice. I had 5 dr supervised diets.. Atkins 2 times.. hgc.. all in 6 years. I wrote them a 2 page letter. Let's just hope for the best. Good Luck! I know I'll get approved but it's the wait! Im on everything as soon as I get the approval! Don't DO anything until you get the approval.. it wont count! I read it in the rules!

I also wrote a personal letter to Molina as to why I need the surgery, I listed all 12 diets that I have been on over the last 5 years, all my weight related issues, and my supports. The goal was to make Molina understand how motivated I am and how much I need the surgery, now we have to wait for the approval to take the next step

Yes, here too. Thing is I wonder how close together we can get them scheduled. They may be booked up.. lots of people on medicaid are doing this now. Im worst worry is not being able to get in as often as I would like. 1 a week for each one would do it IF we can do them all at the same time. That's like 3 appts a week for 3 months.

My primary care physician said that he recommends attempting the 3 month goal because it will give wiggle room for appointment rescheduling.

      Hey ya'll. SO. I got down to 199 for the weigh in but gained it all back right after. I have to do another month of weight management. They switched out the nutritionists at the last second and she said she doesn't pass anyone unless they have 5 veggies a week. I'm starting metformin and Farxiga today. Doc found a little bit of blood in my urine but wasn't too concerned. I'm trying not to freak myself out either. Depression is a little more intense than usual. I'm all over the damn place.

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights
