I did two supervised diet programs but I'm concerned my documentation isn't good enough for insurance approval.
My first dr supervised diet was from a hospital that included calorie restriction (800 primarily shakes) and weekly meetings with weigh ins, and planned goals for exercise. I have three letters from this dr/hospital diet program which was sent to my primary care physician outlining my attendance, goals, start and progress, and the letters span over/past a 6 month period, but I do not have my weekly weigh in logs. Silly me I threw out my weekly weigh in logs and I did this purpously because I had lost weight and never wanted to see these weight numbers again. Obviously I was not thinking of bariatric surgery at this time. Unfortunaltey it took me all but two years to gain back all the weight I had lost.
My second supervised diet was from my primary care physician PCP, and I have copies of pharmacy records that indicate I was on Adipex (diet pill) for 10 months. I did see my PCP various times throughout this process but not monthly. I also did Weigh****chers during this time but I have looked everywhere and I cannot find my weekly logs from WW. I do have documentation regarding my registration into two - 12 week WW programs but not my weekly logs.
What do you think? Will this suffice? What have others used for approval and or appeals?
