Insurance Approved me in 1 Day



Recommended Posts

Wow! i formally started this process on December 27th, doctor submitted my info and psych eval to insurance on January 4th, and my insurance approved me January 5th. I definitely thought i would have more time to prepare but now my surgery is January 30th and I have a lot to prepare for before then. They wanted to do it on the 16th but that seemed too soon! I did research prior to my appointments but I didn’t expect it to move this quickly!

Wish me luck!

Congratulations! Just remember that the actual surgery is a small event that you will sleep through.

My insurance approved me pretty fast too once they got the information. I took the first surgery date I could get and had the procedure in Nov 2022. For me, the hardest part was the pre op liquid diet those Protein Shakes were just too sweet. After my surgery a friend of mine put together a Protein concoction that i could live with, she put a Protein Shake, fage greek yougurt 0% unflavored, Protein Powder and coconut in the blender. Once i drink all of that in a day i know i got about 87 gm of protein. It is not too sweet and it works much better than the straight protein shakes.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪

      Hello, I am 53 years old and just in the beginning of my process.  Lost my required weight prior to surgery, Psychological evaluation completed, meet with surgeon, meeting monthly with dietitian and now waiting for the perapproval from insurance.  Hoping for April or May.  Still to do on my list is joining a support group.  My weight loss clinic has one but I would like this as an option too.  I will be having the gastric sleeve surgery.  Excited for this journey.   Thanks for your support.
