How long does it take the doctors office to get the approval?



Recommended Posts

My insurance company called yesterday and said I was approved Wednesday so I called my doctors office and they said they haven't received it yet. How long does it normally take for them to receive the approval?

Depends on how they communicated originally but just keep following up with the Doctors office every couple days. Its usually pretty quick.

It usually takes 2 to 3 business days. Nonetheless...Congratulations on your approval! [emoji122]

I'm a little nervous, yet excited at the same time. It is a weird feeling of mixed anxiety. I am in no way regretting or dreading the surgery, just more like anticipation of the change to my life. I know it will be hard work, but I'm already practicing what it will be like after the surgery...by doing that I've managed to lose 24lbs going in. I'm determined to make this a permanent change!

Soon you will be eyeing your surgery date with the same feelings! So excited for you! I know how felt when I was seeking a surgery date after approval. Please let me know when you get your date!

Yeah,I'm more of let's get this over with since my last supervised diet date was Dec 10th my paperwork been was suppose to be submitted to my insurance because I had everything done. I was thinking it was submitted but oh no they called me Jan 7th to tell me it was submitted and to schedule my EGD for Jan 18th. I was like wow! When did you start your journey? Do you know someone that has had the surgery before?

Make them check while you’re on the phone . When I called after insurance confirmed I got approved they said they hadn’t received it yet. I was like can you double check and low and behold it was there .

She called me Sunday to schedule my pre consents appointment for Thursday. I was so shocked she called me on a Sunday. I received my approval letter in the mail Monday. Might’ve been in there since Saturday but I don’t check my mail everyday, lol
