I am happy for those of you who didn't have to play the waiting game (6 to 18 months) of medically supervised weight loss!
It must be the difference in PCP progress notes and documentation of visits. I have a BMI of 44, high bp, high lipids, diabetes II, gout, sleep apnea, low thyroid, degenerative disc (two back surgeries) ...I take 13 different medications twice a day...needless to say, I also have depression issues. What more did they want??
My surgeons office called to tell me about the insurance denial and asked if I felt I "might not live for another 6 months" ...because I could file an emergency appeal. WHAT!??
I just have to think everything happens for a reason and I had to suck it up and do my 6 months.
3 months down...three to go!
