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.

        I would love to be your accountability partner. I had the sleeve in 2021, so maybe I can give you some insights.

        Please message me back, looking forward to hearing from you!
