I understand your nervousness. My surgery is the 30th My surgery wasn't scheduled until after the insurance approval. I hope all goes well.

You can totally call and inquire about the status of your approval

Good Luck 💜

I have! There was a new form they needed my PCP to fill out and I’ve been waiting on them to send it back. I just called and they faxed it this morning so hopefully that’s the final thing to get my approval. Trying to remain positive.

They tell you that once they have all the paperwork, it can take a month...but mine took 2 days. And from what I've heard, others have had similar experiences. I'm just surprised the doctors scheduled it before they had approval. I'm sure it will come in.

Good luck. My surgeon's office wouldn't put the surgery on their calendar until I had insurance approval.

I was also in your shoes, my dr schedules 2-3 weeks out from when they submit everything so I was nervous but eventually it all worked out and I have faith that yours will too! Good Luck!

Thank you! I’m a bundle of nerves but I’m going to try to just enjoy the new few days off of work with my two little ones and let whatever happens, happen.

The coordinator called and let me know that the last two forms they requested are sent back and she designated everything as “urgent” with my surgery date next to it so she said if she doesn’t hear anything tomorrow, she’ll give them a call Monday.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
