Nurse practitioner or DR- United Healthcare

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I’m starting my weight loss journey to get VSG. I am on month 2 of my 6 month weight monitoring. My insurance is UHC and requires it. I asked my Bariatric registered nurse if I needed a “doctor aka licensed physician” to sign off on my 6 month and she said my nurse practitioner is fine. I just don’t want to go through these 6 months and then have to start over. Did anyone else use a nurse practitioner and get approved? Any advice will help. Thanks in advance.

Hello! Yes, I used my Nurse Practitioner for my insurance submission. I've had my NP sign off on one of my bariatric surgery's and had no issues what so ever, in fact it was easier to have my NP involved because she was very knowledgeable and supportive in my process.
