How long did it take for your insurance to approve surgery



Recommended Posts

I am going in for my last checkup with my doctor in NY. Once that is complete I will have finished all of the pre approval requirements. How long did it take for your insurance to approve the surgery? I want to have it done asap

2 weeks seems to be the "average" in my experience. Don't be afraid to call the insurance company to confirm receipt, confirm processing, ask the status, ETC ETC ETC. You pay them for their service, don't let them have all the control!
