Premera Blue Cross Washington

Recommended Posts

My surgery date is set, for this I am excited!
I already know that insurance will deny the pre approval but my surgeon and dietitian are confident they can get it approved on appeal.
I have a hiatal hernia, due to my weight this is the only surgery recommended due to high rate of failure for the other options. Premera considers this treatment "investigational" which will result in the initial denial I am expecting.

My surgery is scheduled in May (my surgeon is popular :) ), they are putting in the pre approval now.
Does anyone have an idea as to how long I can expect the denial and appeal to take?
