Fidelis Care NY (Medicaid)



Recommended Posts

Hi,

Im fairly new to this process. So far I have haf my initial consultation woth the surgeon, nirse and dietician. I was told that I would be able to get the sleeve in 3-4 months since Fidelis has no program requirement for approval.

I have my psych appointment on May 22, my dietician appointment for June 5th, my pcp appointment (for medical necessity letter) on June 6th. I also have to get my labwork done, which I will be doing next week.

In your experience, what else does Fidelis need to approve?

Right now my only concern is my PCP approval letter, because he hasn't discussed much other than dropping to 1300 kcals a day in the past. I got pregnant shortly after that and had gestational diabetes and was on a GD diet per the endocrinologist. This is the first time I will be seeing him since before I had the baby (its been a little over a year).

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
