Hey guys! This is my first post here! I just wanted to share that I’ve been approved by my insurance for VSG!! I have Cigna insurance, and I only had to have one nutrition recommendation, one psych recommendation, a letter recommending me for surgery from a doctor who isn’t the surgeon (my PCP provided this), and a letter from the surgeon recommending me for surgery. The whole process took a couple of weeks because of my schedule, but I got the green light! I DID NOT complete a 3 month or 6 month (or any months, for that matter) physician supervised diet. The letter from my PCP was very general and just listed that they had been monitoring my weight and all of the things I had tried at home (Atkins, Weight Watchers, etc...). Next is getting with the scheduled to get a date!! Good luck to everyone!
