Dont always go by dr's list of pre-op requirements



Recommended Posts

United healthcare approved me today (UHC-Choice) My surgeons office said I must do 6 months of diet/sleep apnea study/nutritional visit/phyc eval/ekg/and get cleared for surgery. I asked is that my insurance requirements or yours? Billing coordinator (very rude through the whole process) no,no that's ins requirements see here. She pulls up what I know as "general guidelines" I told her that wasn't required of my lapband- please submit for me. She refused without medical clearance and a endoscopy/colonoscopy- I complied. Now please submit- shes stays true to her nasty self"what am I submitting? your band has no issue and you have done the requirements. Me please just submit as is.. Billing coordinator- well I will but this is a waste of time....... This am ,Approval letter is on myuhc. Cant wait to call miss congeniality on Monday. I posted here so some will hear my story and find hope that you may get approved!!

Little Ms Hateful,must have a supervisor, kick It up if you have to! [emoji13]Funny, when I had UHC I had a liason person who was also a nurse to expedite things. It wasn't for Bariatrics but something else. And that was only a little over 2 years ago. Maybe corporate has gone downhill![emoji38]
