Waiting on approval bcbstx



Recommended Posts

I am finally to the point where I am just waiting for the approval from my insurance. I have bcbstx and the request was just sent in yesterday so I'm sure I'm in for a little bit of a wait. I am beyond excited. I hope this is a smooth and quick process. If all goes well my surgery date will be July 27th. Wish me luck!

I have BCBSTX and I was approved in four days! It was incredible. Doc had told me to expect to wait for 30 days for the insurance to approve or deny it. I was just bored and looking at their website and looked under the "Claims center" tab and saw it was approved. I emailed my doctor's coordinator and she said she was just about to call me in the afternoon to let me know!

So keep checking that tab! Good luck!

I checked the website on Friday and saw that I was approved. I'm so excited!

I'm sorry to hear that your insurance won't cover bariatric surgery. I hope you are able to figure out an alternative.

Good Luck

I know this is an old thread. I am having a hard time finding what plans through BCBSTX will cover wls because ALL of them on the website say its excluded. What plan type did you have that covered it? bronze, silver, or gold?
