Florida Staywell covered surgery



Recommended Posts

When my husband and I moved here, we didn’t have jobs so I applied for Medicaid for us while we were looking. And we got approved. I found out a couple of months later that Staywell/WellCare might possibly cover bariatric surgery so I gave it a chance. In 4 months I was completely approved and operated on yesterday. Woohoo!

Let me know if you have any questions. I’ll try to help as much as I can!

Hi! Congrats on your surgery! I'm at the tail end of my pre approval process. I have staywell as well. What did your process consist of? I know you said it took 4 months. I had to do 6 months weight loss trial, ekg, sleep study, bloodwork, etc. Just wondering what all you had to do get approved so quickly? Definitely gives me hope that I'll get approved soon!

Hello! I have staywell as well, and I’m just starting the process. I had a to do a seminar before I was able to submit my paper work the staywell to see if I can be approved for surgery. If I am, I have to meet with the surgeon to do all the steps with him.

      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.
