Can I contact my Insurance to see if I was approved?



Recommended Posts

Hi,

I just signed up for bariatricpal today, so I'm very new to this. Wanted to know if anyone has contacted their insurance themself to see if they were approved for surgery? I have United Healthcare and it's been two weeks since we sent everything to get approved. I already received a bill from the hospital stating that I need to pay a certain amount 7 days before surgery. I contacted the number that was provided and they told me they wouldn't have had my information if I wasn't approved already. My surgical coordinator has been in and out of the office a lot and I'm just confused at this point. My surgery has already been scheduled for Sep 30th. I know I have some time, but with work I need to know at least 3 weeks before. I'm kind of stressed!

I contacted my insurance company yesterday to see if I was approved. Turns out everything was submitted on Aug. 19 and I received approval on Aug. 20. I made sure to get the authorization number, date the letter was sent, and a contact name for my doctor.

Then I called my doctor to let them know. I received a call later that day from the doctor's office with my surgery date! Sept. 21.

Hope this helps!
