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,
