GIC Unicare in Mass- Anyone?



Recommended Posts

I've been reading a ton of posts on this site since I've begun my journey. I've gained a ton of knowledge ...you guys/gals are all amazing!! This is my first post. I've completed all of the pre-op requirements and my case has been submitted to my insurance for approval. I have GIC Unicare Idemnity in Mass through my employer. There isn't much info that I can find in wit members guide or on the internet about their approval process, stats, how long etc. I also read a ton of posts in this forum and haven't come across anyone who has this same insurance. My doctor has had patients in the past who have had this insurance. I am borderline 39/40 BMI, for co-mobs, my doctor is comfortable using my family history and putting the sleep ap test on layaway. I can't get a clear "what are the requirements" from the insurance co. I'm so anxious...Can someone offer me something to ease my mind? XOXO

Hi Tanyatata...I’m just starting my appts for a revision and I’m wondering if you were able to get approval from GIC Unicare. I have the same insurance and I’m trying to figure out the requirements.
