Well the good news is that they got it, sometimes it can take a couple of days and pending means they haven't made a decision,

Mine pended for almost two weeks before I got approval.  Trust me, I checked that puppy everyday!  If it makes you feel better, call; however, I would say that it just means they got it and are processing it.

wow, I dont think my insurance has a site to check it! lol..thats pretty cool.


Yes, I would take that to me that no decision has been made but they have received the paperwork!

Thanks I thought it meant pending but it said pended and when I looked that up online some people said it might mean they needed more info. I had my band out on 3-21 after 8 yrs and did not do the 6 month diet required by my insurance because I was told if you had WLS before you didnt have to do it so I am on pins and needles and trying to tell myself if they deny it I can fight and either way they have to approve it in October. But as of now I am tentative for 7-25 or 8-1.

Quite often with insurance companies one end does not know what the other end is doing. DO stay on top of it anc keep checking until you get a definite date.
