Humana requirements



Recommended Posts

I’m starting my Weightloss surgery journey, I’m literally at the beginning I’m talking seminar beginning. I have questions about the requirements for Humana gold plus is the also the plan I have. I’m covered through a Medicare Advantage plan and aside from the program fee and the dieticians visits I’m supposed to have $0 everything? Does anyone else have this plan who has had surgery?

I have the Humana Choice Medicare Advantage Plan. I’m not 100% sure of the difference between the Gold plan and mine, but I know they cover everything Medicare does. I was also required to pay my dietician visits. If your plan requires a PPO and you don’t use one, you will pay more. I had co-pays for Pre-op tests like the cardiologist & psych visit. As far as the surgery itself, all I paid was $295 per night in the hospital. I was in two nights ($590). EVERYTHING was included in that - surgery, surgeon, anesthesiologist, labs, and anything else while I was in the hospital. Humana also covered my first couple of office visits with my surgeon after my surgery. Your Humana book should tell you what they will cover - just look under surgery. Humana also approved my surgery within 2 days of my surgeons submission. I hope,this helps you somewhat. Good Luck on your journey!

I had the surgery a year ago and I was on Medicare Advantage through Humana, PPO Plus, not Gold Plan. It covered everything after my deductible. For the whole surgery, pre-testing, hospital stay, everything, I think I was out $600 total. Good deal!

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
