Finally Ins gave approval

  1. joanaheter
    I am so excited today I heard from my Dr's office the ins gave the approval. Now I am waiting to hear back from the Dr office to schedule my surgery. I have been getting bummed lately, not hearing anything. I started my journey on Feb 15, 2013, I know it doesn't sound like a long time, but for me it has seemed like a long time. I had to do 3 months of weight management, pych eval, upper and lower gi, blood work. I wish I could jump up and down, that is how much excitment I have in me right now. I don't have many people to talk to right now. I am trying to keep it hush until I have to say anything, especially at work. Thank you all for listening...

    @spiffininny Here's a question - you said that you are covered by a limited insurance plan that doesn't cover this surgery. Is there any way that you can get switched to Medicare/Medicaid? I know that those govt insurance plans do cover bariatric surgery.
