how long for BCBS approval?



Recommended Posts

I am just wondering how long it took from the time you submitted all of your paperwork, until you heard back from insurance? I have BCBS Connecticut. The lady told me that I should know within a week or so. I think she submitted it last Friday. I am so nervous, and just praying that they will approve me. My BMI is 41 and no health problems! WISH ME LUCK, I COULD USE IT!!!

Staying positive! :thumbup:

I have BCBS of Georgia and I got my approval in less than a week. I also have a BMI of 41 with no other complications. I had to call my insurance company the Dr.'s office did not let me know.

Hi,

I have BCBS in Texas. It took 4 days for my approval. My friend has the same insurance and I think it took a week for approval. It's well worth the wait. Good Luck!

Hi Kim,

I have BCBS of Georgia and they were fairly quick in approving my surgery. My weight loss center did have me do somewhat of a monitored diet for a short time and a few test that some BCBS require but it may depend on the policy. I am looking forward to my surgery on 6/23/08. I wish you the best of luck. :confused_smile:

Mine was approved in 2 days. I called the 4th day and learned it was approved. I probably received the letter the 6th day.

I have bcbs of MN and they told me (its also in the policy book) that they only have 10 days to approve or deny. I just gave all my paper work today to the center and now I will just wait :blink: Im sooo nervous I am sick really.

I live in Michigan and it took 2 weeks after I submitted all hey required, but this 6 years ago. I had to get a psych exam, submit medical history that documented weight loss attempts, and get all this blood work and the such.

I realize that the wait was all well worth i, but I know how daunting the anxiety is.

I have Federal BCBS. It took about three weeks because the Dr. office was telling me something altogether different than what my plan consist of. I sent BCBS a letter and was approved in a day. I was banned January 17 and down 70 lbs. A ride worth taking.

Good luck to all who are ready to accept the challenge. It was well worth the dive.
