Does anyone know what the process is for this insurance? I know that they cover it but Idk if they have a supervised diet or not? if you have been approved, was it easy or did you have troubles? let me know! thanks!

hey there,

Paramount advantage is the only insurance in our area that does NOT require a 6 month supervised diet. You simply go to the seminar and go from there. From the seminar date til my surgery was prob. one month, maybe a month and a half. The longest part of the the process is the psych eval. First you have to wait for your appt, then you go test (which is like 2-2.5 hours long!) then you have to go back in a week or so to hear the results. Once everything is done, they submitt the paper work, and approval comes within a day or two.

DO it! It's so worth it! and oh, chose DR. PATRICK WHITE, he is the best!

Best of luck,
Mzlisa~~

Where did you have to go to for the seminar?  I am in very begining stages of trying to get everything in order and I was told that I have to go see my PCP first and he has to okay it first, then he has to refer me out from there.  Is there any tips on how I can get this all moving a little faster?

You have to go to a seminar and you will recieve all the paperwork you need to get started there! good luck!  I was denied today, so Im kinda down, but its because on my psych eval she requested that I join a support group before and after, so I go to a support meeting on April 5th at Dr. whites office.
