The waiting is the worst, isn't it? But don't worry, one day soon the phone'll ring, and your date will be sooner than you expected! Hang in there....

Heya,

I have BCBSTX and was approved in FOUR DAYS. My doc had said that I should prepare to wait around 30 days for the insurance to approve or deny.. but one night I couldn't sleep and I was just reading around on my BCBS account and saw it was approved in the "claims" section. (I didn't even know it would show up on my account).

I contacted the coordinator and she said she got the approval and was going to call me in the afternoon to let me know.

I don't know if this is typical of BCBSTX, but mine was approved in days. With that said, I did have a lot of "comorbidities" (high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high triglycerides and close to diabetic). That might have been why they approved it so quickly?

I am sure different insurance companies worked differently on approvals though.

I hope you get word soon and it is approved!

My insurance paperwork was submitted on Tuesday and I was told it would take 3-5 business days fingerscross and hopefully we hear something back soon! The coordinator has blocked off July 14 as my surgery date.
