I do not have any co-morbidities. However My BMI is 40.5. I do have PCOS and I have lost my right ovary and fallopian tube. I have BCBS federal employee basic insurance. Per my insurance I need to have a BMI of 40+ for the past two years in order to get approved. I am in the process of appealing, but I was wondering has anyone had luck getting approved or with an appeal just with having PCOS. I have all the symptoms of PCOS including: hirsutism, missing periods, and my prolactin is high.
Hey everyone I just want to say that I finally got approved for surgery. I choose to do the WLS appeals, and they were completely amazing.
PLEASE DO NOT GIVE UP, keep fighting for what you need and don't give up hope!
