Yes. Both the doctor's office and my Optum nurse. Ugh.

I've left messages for my Optum nurse and she hasn't called me back. That was 2 weeks ago

Have you call United health care themselves insteadt of your optum nurse now I called United health care to see if all My paperwork was submitted they said everything was submitted to them on Monday but My doctors Office told me that they were going to submit everything last Monday. I feel like most optum nurses have no clue what's going on. But make sure you don't count weekends as they are not business days just Mon-Fri for your 30days

Yes, I called them twice. Always still pending review. My doctor's office said they are checking everyday, so it helps knowing that.

Mine (Optum Nurse) happen to be in vacation when I messaged her, so a few days later that's when I called UHC directly. Then when she came back she said the same thing they told me over the phone. That was reassuring. But waiting sucks, especially knowing some lucky people get and answer in a few days or even a few weeks.

My problem is...I don't want to bug people. I know it's probably better if I did, I just can't do it - I'm not wired that way. I'll probably check in again on Monday (but I'll second guess myself first, ha).
