So my doctor sent in my paperwork on the 22nd I believe or the 23rd and I haven’t heard back yet. I kind of figured I wouldn’t hear back until after Christmas and the weekend so I am really hoping to have an answer next week. The surgeon said if approved I would have the surgery in February. How long did it take once your paperwork was submitted to get a date? I have BCBSNJ by the way.

I can't remember - maybe a week or two? They likely have a lot of staff out on vacation for the holidays, so I'd give it a couple of weeks. You may hear before then, though...

It only took about two weeks for approval, but then my surgeon was booked up for a month on her schedule, so it took me a little while to get on the schedule for surgery.

Heh, I might be a special case because I kept advocating hard for myself all along, but from submission to approval was about 3 days for me. Originally one of the people I spoke with said it could take 7-10 business days for my insurance to respond, but I guess it depends on your insurance. The person I spoke with also said at the end of the year insurances tend to respond quickly.
