Fight, fight, fight and fight

Keep the appeals and bury them in covered specialists. Drop money into a pretax health saving account if you think about out of pocket. Canada May be an option too.
I just hate the wait. I know it will get done. I was told today that I just need to provide that it is necessary. Fight, fight and fight again.

I was just watching a YouTube who had done a lot of research and she found a website where they fight for the revisions and surgeries to be approved after they are denied. They work and get you approved. Might be something to look into. The website is www.wlsappeals.com and it is called Lindstrom Obesity Advocacy.

Change insurers if you can and tell them you will do it

Thank you all so much. There is a planned meeting/appeal/review in 2 weeks. I am fighting for my health.

Onr small word of advice if you are to attend the planned meeting :

Fight smart not emotionally. Insurers are inoculated against cries (they often deny life saving treatments, yours is nothing in comparison)

Present clear precise evidence-based materials especially details about timelines/ projected length of illness, known complications and expenses associated with further half step treatment

Otherwise your physician may do this for you

Good Luck good vibes your way 💜

Thanks, I am working on gathering the information and planning my attack. I am not an overly emotional type person. I fight with facts. I work the system. I am just tried of being in pain. Mexico or selfpay is not an option. I have been through life or death surgeries. I never given up. This is not only important to me; it effects my family.

Ok, the only thing I did not understand? I am approved? If I agree to start over. Like no previous testing, surgeries and wait for an undetermined time.

So, no clue how long this is going to take. I feel excited and mad at the same time.

It will 6 take months so March 2020. I don't know how to feel. I don't have a weight lost goal. However, I have to see everyone like the nutritionalist/doctor, Bloodwork and EKG. I don't know whether to be happy or mad. I want to get off the rollercoaster. So I am[emoji12][emoji13]

That is very odd for a medically necessary revision due to GERD.

Did the insurance company even read your history?

Maybe surgeon can fight the six month wait?

We will see. The hardest part? I plan to start graduate school in Jan. Wow 2020 will be a year of transformation.
