Should I get a case nurse



Recommended Posts

My surgeon has said that he isn’t sure if my insurance will approve my surgery.I am following up with him in 4 weeks and I just watched someone who got sleeved on YouTube explain that getting a case nurse may help with chances of approval. I don’t want to seem like I’m going against my surgeon or decreasing my chances because my age plays a factor, yet I’m not sure if my plan includes bariatric surgery. I want to call today as I have seen the surgeon yesterday but the last time I had rushed to call I had been stricken with bad news.

What does your health insurance company say? Who would pay for a nurse case manager?

how old are you? A lot of us have surgery in our 50s and 60s. I've even seen a handful in their 70s.

EDITED to add: never mind - I just saw your other post. You're on the other end of the age continuum!

My health insurance says that it has to be considered medically necessary because I am an adolescent,and I’m not sure, I thought that they would. I’m going to call tomorrow.

Attending appointments with me, and being very supportive.May I ask why you asked me this question? If it makes sense, I’m way more tech savvy and although they’re doing research themselves it’s easier and faster for me since I’m the one potentially getting surgery.
