Looking for UHC Choice Plus, Tx people and if you were Approved?!?

How long after submitting were you Approved?

Anyone have United Healthcare Choice Plus in TX?

Anyone get Approved with BMI over 40+ and no comorbidities?!

I had UHC plus and it took them 10 business days. I was required to do 6 months pre-op. My BMI was 48 and I had hypertension, but I was told it’s much easier to get approved with UHC than Aetna.

Also they didn’t care if I gained weight during that 6 month period just as long as I didn’t miss any supervised dieting appointments. Maybe that helps?

Thanks for the information I was advised today by a UHC rep in addition to all you mentioned I would also need to provide UHC with a minimum of 5 years worth of morbid obesity diagnosis from my physician and that my plan only covers 70% after meeting my deductible. It has me feeling realllllly down because getting the surgery out of the country would be a cheaper out of pocket for me but what makes me pause on that is my physician is not on board with me getting the sleeve outside of the United States so I will do all I can to get it approved and If i don't get approved I will look into getting the surgery outside of the U.S.

Hey, do you have United healthcare choice plus? im waithing for approval still just asking cause I wasnt told I needed 5+yrs just the 6 mnth!?

I had surgery under UHC choice plus and I'm not sure about the 5 years of records but my BMI was 42 and I was approved fairly quickly! Don't forget the holidays can cause them to focus on authorizations that are "rushed" as they might be short staffed! You can call and check the status and see if they will tell you when it was received or what's going on! From my understanding since my BMI was over 40 they approved it.
