Are you looking for the BariatricPal Store? Go now!

I have Aetna PPO and I was wondering what I’d have to pay out of pocket. We have a 15% coinsurance.

It’s in our insurance paperwork. I hope I didn’t go through all of this for nothing.

Any luck getting approved?

My Aetna plan required me to choose from a very small list of facilities that they designated as centers for excellence. Maybe they rejected the provider if your plan does not exclude bariatric surgery.

I’m on Aetna PPO and got denied this week even though I meet all of the requirements for surgery. They said that bariatric surgery is not covered under this plan 😞

That is so frustrating! You went through all of the steps and didn't get to have it? I'm one month in to my pre-surgery program and I also have aetna PPO. I just looked and AETNA PPO says surgery is covered. you should push back!

If I may can I ask you if this insurance is through your employer or or spouses & is it Aetna Erlanger? Reason for asking is my husband works for Erlanger here in Chattanooga,TN. and my deductible has been met for 2019.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
