It's my understanding that it has to be no more than 30, right around 30, must be every 30 days.

I had to do once a month and the dietician schedule all 6 of them up front so they could control the frequency.

Mine was the same. I have Anthem BCBS.

I just got information back from my doctor and they said as long as they are 26-30 then it's good. I have Anthem BCBS as well, how did your approval process go? @Briswife15

Whatever you do, never never never miss one--even if you have a gain for a month! It starts the clock over from scratch! Good luck!

My approval process with Anthem was smooth and quick. Hopefully yours will be, too!!

I hope so my 6 month diet will end in the second week of dec. and they want to get me in before the end of the month so I don’t have to pay so much. I’ll pay $800 this year compared to $5k next year!

It is variable depending upon insurance company. Mine was for six months, implicitly every month but not specified as such, Between my schedule and my doc's we only had about four meetings during that six months and that was fine. Other companies, as others have noted, are a lot fussier and must be no more than a month apart (they're looking for an excuse to deny you!)

Check with the exact wording of their policy bulletin, which should be available on their website, or have the surgeon's insurance coordinator interpret it for you.

Good luck!

Check with your insurance, I was told that it had to be 30 days, and if it went over 30 days, I would have to restart my nutrition journey. But everybody has a different plan and insurance company

      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.
