I had been looking forward to December 16th as my surgery date, but because of insurance problems, I cannot go forward. I wrote a complete update in my profile if any of you care to look there.
I'm a little disappointed by all of this, but I'm hoping by waiting I am making the right decision. I am also hoping and praying this new insurance company will approve me. I've spoken to a few people at the new ins. company and they've all been very positive about the situation. They've told me since I've gotten prior approval (from my current insurance company) and have all the necessary pre-op tests, letters, etc. that I stand a better chance of getting approved. They do not have any exclusion for a specific weight loss surgery which is encouraging I guess?
At any rate, if any of you have any experience with FirstHealth PPO please let me know. My mother is an HCA hospital employee and I will be covered under her plan.
Thanks and God Bless,
