Spoke to surgeon now waiting



Recommended Posts

Hello I had a short meeting with my surgeon today basically I had to go in for a weigh in and just making sire I still wanted the surgery. She said they will submit my paperwork to BCBS and it can take anywhere from 2 days to up until 3 weeks for authorization. She is wanting to do the surgery in February so I am hoping I hear something by the end of next week. How long did it take for you guys and gals to get a date?

I had surgery two weeks after I was approved. Less actually. I started my preop diet on a Monday and was approved on that Wednesday. They got me in a week and a half later. They were excellent.

How long did it take to get your approval after all your requirements were met?
