How long was your approval time for the revision?

My revision was deemed "medically necessary" because of damage in my esophagus from reflux. Saw the surgeon and was sceduled for surgery within a week. I have Kaiser insurance, so its all in the same facility.

While mine was technically medically necessary, my doctor wanted me to go through their bariatric program so I can learn what life and eating like with RNY. The program was accelerated because my GERD is severe. I began middle of November and was approved 2/1. Surgery is on 3/18. It was worth the wait and I appreciate that they wanted me to be as knowledgeable as possible.

I’m due to get it. Need to contact the surgeon’s person to make sure insurance will cover conversion as medically necessary so no date yet. A year and a half post sleeve and my GERD is unbearable and I got gastroparesis. Original surgeon is a jerk so I’m hoping insurance will be okay with a different one. He said about 90% of his patients are cured of GERD.

I had sleeve to bypass, but not because of GERD. My sleeve was so stretched out, it was useless. I'm happy to answer any questions about the process.
