United Healthcare Approval / Small Weight Gain



Recommended Posts

Hi. I have United Healthcare. My BMI is 37, a bit over the 35. I had to do a 6 month program prior to surgery. And today I finished the program but I gained 3 lbs from my starting weight. I was told to keep it steady and I really did.

Will insurance deny me for 3lbs? :(

Hi!

I have UHC as well! I have Choice Plus...my bmi is 37 as well, do you have comorbidities? I was worried about gaining as well, but my doctors told me not to worry, I gained about 2 pounds. She said it won't make much of a difference. Let me know how it goes! My paperwork will be submitted 3/3. I'm so nervous!

I was approved. I was also told that United Health is usually very good about approving. So if it’s minimal gain and your on the low end, I think you’ll be fine. Sorry for the late response!!!
