BcBsIL community family health plan



Recommended Posts

Does anyone have this insurance? What was your experience? I had my first consultation today and the nurse practitioner told me that I have to see a nutritionist for six months,get a psych evalve and get blood work done. I thought there wasn't a supervised meal plan requirement anymore?

She also said that they don't cover gastric bypass only gastric sleeve and lapband....again, I thought all 3 were covered.?

I called bcbs to find out and they were clueless!

@@MelaninMonroe Every plan with BCBS is different. If you called BCBS and they couldn't tell you what your coverage is, keep calling until you get someone who isn't lazy and can tell you what your coverage is.

What is your BMI?

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!
