Hello All,

The office submitted for surgery yesterday and I just wanted to know with Blue care network of Michigan (***) how lond does it usually take? My Surgery date is January 28th, 2020. Anyone has any experience with BCN. I meet all the criterias and have had all the testing done. Now im just waiting on insurance approval and the day to come. Im very anxious and ready. This Has been a long road and I have lost 65lbs this year and hoping to lose 20 more lbs before surgery to help with the process. Also, i have $1034 left in my deductible and out of pocket for it to be paid fully they both was $6500 how does that work will i have to pay anything? So far i have paid about $600 in the visits with the surgeon and all the testing.

Hi. I maybe able to answer that question. Your deductible will be eaten with the procedures. Like I had to do 2 sleep studies, and egd, see a psych, so on an so forth. Do things to get it down. Go see the dermatologist or any old thing like that lol! Also, doesn’t all of that reset at the beginning of the year? Your deductible and out of pocket will reset to your plan default on 1/1/20

Yes if your surgery doesn’t happen until January your deductible and oop start over. No matter when you are approved. Could you possibly get your surgeon to do it before Jan 1? May be worth a shot.

Yup, losingit2018 is right. Everything is all about procedure date, not approval date. Sorry.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
