Was just wondering if anyone has had the DS with MNma UCare at the U of M? Will they cover the lap DS? if so how long of a process is it taking?

Yes, we have had DS'ers with MN UCare.
Have you been to Dr. I's info session? Where are you at in the process?

Yes I was there on 4/29/10 just had all the beginning labs done today, and I go for my 2nd appt on 5/27/10. My tentative surgery date is end of sept beginning of oct.

My revision to the DS was covered by UCare without a hitch. Mine was open, but I don't think HOW it's done is even discussed with insurance.

Fantastic! You are going to love the DS.
Any questions, just let me know. I'm about 10 miles west of you - so we could always meet up for a coffee or something. We've got another DS'er in Forest Lake, too.
