If you know insurance doesn't cover surgery



Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. I work for a public school system that does not cover the surgery. I feel like this is hopeless. I can not take out another loan for self pay. Paying on student loans and everything else. Has anyone ever been the pre-surgery process, been able to have the labs and other stuff billed through insurance under recommendation from a doctor? Has anyone submitted their documents and such to the insurance company after the pre-surgery process and been approved due to medical nesseccity? Any insight is appreciated.

Thanks,

Kelly

Hi. I'm sorry your employer's policy doesn't cover bariatric surgery. That's a bummer. Unfortunately, even if it is a "medical necessity " if they don't cover it, they don't cover it. I'd suggest talking to HR or whomever decides what your policy covers, and ask them to consider covering it in the future. Good luck to you!

Are you married or young enough to get back on your parents insurance?

      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.
