History 4 insurance approval



Recommended Posts

Hi, I am done with six months appointment, yay! But am now facing insurance issues. I have had history of trying every diet under the sun including the bad drug Phentermine several times. My surgeon now says that I need five years history for my insurance bluecare to cover. Has anyone had this problem and if so what did you do? I am calling my primary doc today to see what kind of weight loss history I have but I'm scared I don't have the

history that my insurance needs

I also had this for lap band. Go to ALL the doctors you've seen and get a copy of your records showing your weight, I only see a gyno and for bronchitis a few times. that was enough. Hope this helps.

Every insurance company is different. It seems like they want five years worth of proof that you are morbidly obese. Can you gather all of your medical records from the last five years and have them resubmit the authorization request?

I wrote a letter that noted all of the different weight loss programs and diets I have tried over the years.
