Texas BC/BS Insurance Timeline



Recommended Posts

Anyone here with Texas BC/BS? I've scheduled my first consult for December and know they require 6 months with a nutrition program before surgery. I'm in school and want to get the surgery done over the summer ASAP so I won't be at risk of missing any of the fall semester. How has the timing been for everyone else on this insurance? Has anyone had any problems getting approved for the surgery right at the 6 month mark? Thanks!!!

BCBS Arkansas here - timing wasn't an issue. I met my providers criteria on Aug 22, they scheduled surgery for Oct 22 and I was submitted for approval in late September and had approval on Oct 2.

BCBS New Jersey. I had a 6 month wait as well. At my consult we scheduled all classes, nutrition consults and tests right then. I started in April, they went for approval in September was supposed to have surgery Oct 1st, but health wise needed to be pushed back to the 15th. It seems like a long wait but it went quick. You should have no trouble scheduling for June/July.
