    Default New Journey starting!

    Hi there! I'm Maria and I'm starting my journey this week. I'm going this Thurs for a referral from my doc and doing a Webinar on weight loss with the Banner Bariatric center in April and hopefully get the ball rolling. I've been overweight all my life and I'm nervous to be denied due to any stupid thing that I could get denied for. I'm here to hear what everyone is going through and any hurdles that I might come across that I could get tips to get through to continue this new journey of mine. Any tips welcome!!!

    Maria

    Hi, Maria.

    Most insurance should approve as long as you fit the criteria for the weight loss surgery. Those would be if you had high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease or sleep apnea. Oh, and have a BMI between 35-40.
