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.

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

      Currently waiting on a surgery date. Hope to hear soon. I have been fighting for the sleeve surgery for 10 years. I am so ready!

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

        Those are championship cups for both you guys! :) I personally came up a 1.4lb winner this morning. ;) hehehehe.

      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)
