So far, my insurance has only required 3 things:

- Past attempts at weight loss (which I gave them weight watchers history, and prescriptions for adipex)

- Psych evaluation (which I did online)

- Meeting with nutritionist (I did in office yesterday)

My doctor's office called today and let me know that once the insurance worker is back in the office tomorrow, she will be submitting to insurance!! Of course they gave me the "It usually takes around two weeks to hear back", but I have seen as little as 3 to 4 business days, so I am hoping for the best!

Hoping I will be able to start my journey soon!

do you mind my asking what your BMI was and any co- morbidities? I just talked to them today and they only list the big ones, without latitude it seemed. The rep actually said to me the fact it was so set suggested they would have to give some... who knows. She recommended having my endo send a request in.
