Tricare Denial..REVERSED!!



Recommended Posts

I mentioned it before, but I would highly recommend little baby spoons. I am used to eating very fast and taking big bites, and this helps me out tremendously!

I agree with that 100%. You can get a pack of spoons and forks (8 piece) at Walmarts for a couple bucks. It is "throwaway". I use it all the time, the plastic is pretty durable, and just the right size!!! Other than restraunts, I have not used "adult sized" silverware (or anything metal :biggrin: LOL) in 4 months!!!!!..

They had a 5 pack of color tipped ones at Walmart. They match my Magic Bullet mugs...I'm such a girl!

WTG Maggie on your surgery date. Trust me..I know it seems like a long time but it will fly by. Take this time to mental prepare and "mourn" the fried mozzerella stix, the cheese dips and the Carmel Machiotto Cappuccinos. It will be easier post op!

Nov.5th. at 10am is the date of my banding. I wanted it sooner but beggars cant be choosers. Maggie:shades_smile:

THAT'S WONDERFUL, Meggie. So happy for you. I wish I could get mine also before Dec 22nd when my parents come from Brasil,but I don't now if it will work. TriWest told me they now have a note saying they will conclude my appela by Nov 8th (it will be 60 days). hehehehe I guess we all know it will be a denial.Well.....

I am so glad you got your approval. I am a wife of a retired army military man. My total cost was around 700.00

Karina, after all of this, your blood pressure should be sky high! So, after 90 days don't you have to resubmit everything? If they deny it, then what?

Great question. I have no idea, I think after this THAT'S it, nothenig else. I will have to deal with it.It really sucks they are taking so long they could just say NO so I can sleep again. The only day of the week I can relax it's saturday because I know they wil not be making any decision. From mon-fri I stress and call them all the time. On sunday I'm alreday waiting for their decision maybe on monday.

Ya, just two weeks, but it seems so long. But I guess after it took me this long to get to this point I should'nt complain. I have to go do an ekg, chest xray and blood work tomorrow for preop.

sharmon, why did you have to pay the $700.00? I'm hoping I end up paying nothing??????? Howabout the rest of you, did you have to pay anything?

Jwrn, hopefully they will surprise you with an approval. Just get you out of your misery and let you know. Fingers are crossed.

I did my EKG, chest x-ray, and bloodwork last week. Today I had my pre-op physical and tmw I go have my post-op nutrition class. Weeeee! The chest x-ray and the bloodwork were fine (of course), but the EKG sucked. I think everyone at Barquist saw my boobs. The girl who was doing it couldn't get one of the leads to read, so she had to call in the guy who worked with her, who had to bring in a female chaperone with him, then he couldn't get it, so they called in some doctor, who got it on the first try. Good thing I've hd a kid and all my modesty was left on the delivery table. :tongue2:

TomatoGirl do you have your surgery date yet? You may have said in an earlier post but I'm to lasy to look back.

Where is Restless? Hiding again, no doubt.

Thanks! We have to get up at 4:30am to be there on time and I had some stuff to do before I went to bed. And, now I have decided to just stay up. I figure I will get lots of rest tomorrow.

I'm tired. I'll let you guys know how it went tomorrow.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

      Hello everyone.. I had my surgery on Sept 30th 2021.. and it has been an horrible experience to me. I can't hold down fluids or soft food. so much mucus is coming up!! and I'm spitting all day. I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!

      Hope everyone's doing ok so far.
      Incidence numbers are on the raise again and hospitals need to treat more COVID patients again. Looking with some kind of dread towards autumn/winter season.
