Approved!!!!! BCBS ANTHEM



Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I started this journey In Aug 2018 I choose my Surgeon on Nov 2018. AT first BCBS said i had to do a Psych eval and 6 consecutive months with a dietitian which they changed it a few days later to 3 Months.

On Monday 2/11/18 My insurance sent my forms over and today i got my approval. IM SOOOOO HAPPY!!! I cant even think straight. I feel like my cheeks are stuck for smiling so much. lol Is this how everyone else felt?

I'm pushing for surgery April 2019

How did you the info from BCBS sent to you? I spoke with someone on the phone and they told me I had no specific number of appointments required with the dietician. BUT my doc keeps telling me that my insurance requires 6 appointments.

I actually logged in my anthem online account and asked them via email then i called them to verify all the requirements. But when i talk to the insurance specialist at The hospital she told me i only had to do 3 months NOT 6 , I'm guessing because the a center of excellence ?

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes
