    Endoscopy can't be scheduled till May 15th.. they said I can call everyday to see if there's any cancellations.. I don't see myself doing that.. but that sucks. Healthnet won't even look at a submission without it... sigh

    Don't be nervous. They don't make money if you don't get the surgery so they are really good at making sure that they do everything right to get you approved. Hang in there.

    Hopefully you hear back soon and get a date really quickly. When I got my approval they offered me a surgery date 7 or 9 days away. I took the 9 day one as I had to let my work know but it happened super fast.

    They told me 10-15 working days ??... but they sent my paperwork on a Thursday and I had confirmation the next Tuesday ... mine was less than a week but I’d say up to 3 full weeks. But like other have said I was scheduled as soon as approved !!.. and had surgery really quick.

    I got approved for my sleeve!!!
    My insurance coordinator emailed me today saying its approved so she is sending my chart to the schedulers who will contact me in 7-10 business days! I'm so relieved, and nervous, and excited, and it's a little nerve wracking going through all the what ifs and when, whats, where's.. leading for peace as I get through this final stretch before the real work and reward gets here!
