Hi, my name is Fredricka and I’m new to the group. I’m super excited. I have UHC and I’m starting my once a week 12 sessions with a nutritionist on Thurs. 1/14/21 as required. This is my final step before approval submission. My current BMI is 46. Hope for some tips and info from you guys as well as encouragement while I go through this journey. Anybody go through UHC for approval?

Welcome! As you peruse the boards you'll notice some people lose weight very quickly and others progress is slower. Use other's success as motivation but please don't become discouraged if yours is a bit more leisurely. Although we're all o the same path, each of our journey's are individual.

Wishing you much success and happiness!😊

I went thru UHC and it was a huge headache, I think I made something like 20 phone calls over the course of 2 days trying to get final approval, and it ran right up to the deadline, I got approval 3 days before my surgery date. To be fair it wasn't entirely UHC's fault, part of the problem was the hospital got hit with a ransomware attack and their systems were having issues so documents and such had to be sent a bunch of times and I had to mediate a conversation between the insurance company and my primary doctor due to them being rude to each other. So yea, that was fun, hope you have a better time with it.
