I'm not covered by Horizon BCBS, but I'm covered by a union that uses the BCBS of Illinois network. This week is my 6th of 7 total visits required by my insurance provider. They aren't covered. It did seem stupid to have to go through six months of dieting with a doctor watching over my shoulder, when I've basically been doing that for the past 10 years since my endocrinologist diagnosed my PCOS, but I've learned a lot about coping with my food impulses and it's been good to have the dietician look over my food and exercise logs.

I have anthem bcbs which requires 6 months. I’ve heard that some insurance companies actually need it to be at least 180 days. Is that true?

I also have PCOS, that’s why I am getting surgery. Can’t wait to feel normal for once
