Anthem BCBS 6 Months Pre-Op Diet



Recommended Posts

Congratulations!!! It's such a huge step [emoji4] Hopefully your pulmonologist comes back from vacation soon and gives you clearance!

Thanks! My appointment is January 23rd, but was supposed to be January 9th. I was like...great. ENJOY YOUR VACATION, THIS IS JUST MY LIFE!

I have anthem bcbs and I’m in month 3 of mwm. I got my psych clearance on monday! I am curious if the mwm is 6 visits or 6 months (7 visits). Can’t seem to find much detail

Mine was technically 7. Since they don't count consultation. But it went by quite fast.

Thanks! My journey started a little differently. My gyno referred me to the bariatric clinic when I saw her in October and I was at my highest weight, 230. I have pcos and went off birth control for two months...instant 15 lbs.

I called my insurance before my consult and found out about the 6 months. I made an appointment with my primary 2 weeks before the consult in November and have been seeing him every month since.

I have an odd situation as well, I had ovarian cancer, and my gyn onc and I talked about it so I understand! I gained 60 from diagnosis through end of chemo!

@survive sleeve slay, are you doing better now? Been enjoying your postings and don't want to lose you.

Yes, thanks. I finished chemo in August 2017. I've been good so far! I think this surgery will also help me get better in tune with my body. I had a huge tumor in my pelvis, and didn't know because I carry my weight in my midsection.

Mine said my 6 had to be consecutive though. Like I didn't have a total of thirty something years under my belt. [emoji52]

That's what I thought but when I called they said to just submit everything and when the insurance lady for the surgeon called they told her 6 in total
