SC Medicaid...Gastric Bypass...Approval?
on 2/13/10 11:11 pm
I have a BMI of 41 with a co-morbidity...also an extensive documented record of past weight loss attempts, physician visits over the last 2 years, attended TOPS meetings for 3 years, etc... Do you think this will qualify me ?
I called Medicaid...the rep says the 6 months of consecutive visits is not required but she sounded like she didn't know what she was talking about :)
I had Absolute total care and I switched to Bluechoice so I wouldn't have to do the 6 month thing!

HELLO IM PLANING HAVE GASTRIC BYPASS I WANTED TO KNOW WIT BLUE CHOICE HOW LONG DID IT TAKE THEM TO APPROVE U? DO THEY MAKE YOU DO DA 6 MONTHS THING R JUST 3 MONTHS
I was told their was no way around the 6 months supervised diet. I have Cigna and medicaid both and they both require the 6 months. I have 2 more months to go. I hope you can get around it but if not. It's not that bad the time go by fast. It also give you time to prepare yourself for the procedure.
