Insurance decision tomorrow



Recommended Posts

Tomorrow the decision will be made on the gasteic sleeve request. We submitted 10/10, regence bcbs of oregon waited 13 days to review and tell me the drs notes were specific enough of when the 6 month diet started, then surgeons office took a week to send the new information in. Anyway. I'm so nervous. I'm scared. I literally dont know what I'll do if I dont get approved. I cannot lose weight at all. I est under 20 grams of carbs a day for 5 years with no loss. Just stay the same. Please pray for an approval for me :)

It was denied!!!! Every hoop jumped through and denied. They will send me a letter telling me why and I can appeal.

Definitely appeal! I was initially denied as well. I met every condition in their policy and did a medically supervised diet for two YEARS. Lost 10% of my body weight. My surgeon's office appealed for me, and my primary care doctor wrote a letter about the denial. They finally overturned their denial. Sometimes I think they just want to make people give up and go away, to save money. Keep fighting!!!

Hey you are still going to have a victory! Hospitals and Insurances, a "pox" on both of them. My local hospital has a bad habit, not submitting claims promptly, I had one bili come back on me, I could prove my insurance provider had pre-approved the procedure, they just didn't submit for 2 years. Luckily I had original paperwork, one of the few toms being Queen hoarder of the Western 🌎helped!

Do you happen to have the letter your dr sent? Sadly my dr knows nothing about insurance so I have to tell her everything to write lol. My surgeons office doesnt even know I have a denial yet. I'm sitting her fuming and especially not knowing they're reason! Sadly it's most like because of my drs crappy chart notes :(

I probably do have it! I'll find it and share. For some reason the private message function doesn't work for me on this BP app...email me hrsnjs@gmail.com with your email info. I'll try to find it tomorrow and email it to you. I'm not sure it will help but it's worth a shot!!
