That is a great idea. I am going to work on my letter as well, hell, I'll do a video if I have to. I never thought to do a letter. I will call my insurance medical group today and find out who I should address my letter too.
Thanks a lot Lori. When I first found out about the waiting period, I cried. I felt as if all hope was lost, but thanks because you have given me hope. I'm not saying I was going to give up, I feelings were just so deflated and disappointed by it. But I wont give up and I definitely will keep you posted.
24 months? That's a really long time. My insurance required 6 months and I know people here (in Arizona) who've had wls with medicaid and they had to wait 6 months too and jump through lots of other hoops, but 24 months seems like so long. Do you have problems that could justify your doctor asking for an exception?
I don't have much advice but to say I'm so sorry. I do understand. I had insurance that I did all the preop stuff (cardiologist, pulmonologist, nutritionist, blood work, psych eval, 6 months of doctor supervised visits) and then was dropped right before we submitted. I was hysterical. Now, a year and half later with new insurance, I am scheduled for April 27. Good luck to you! I really wish you the best.
