I almost wish that they didn't schedule me until after the insurance ok's the surgery.  I've been a nervous wreck waiting to hear on insurance!

I'm not sure but have you heard yet if your approval has gone through?

Have you heard from your insurance yet? 

I called my insurance everyday to check the status of my authorization. If I wasn't calling, I was logged onto their website constantly reloading the page hoping for an update. When I called on Monday they told me they were waiting on paperwork, so I called my surgeon's office, and come to find out, they had already sent the paperwork, so I called BCBS back and they said it was processing. I happened to check this morning before we went to church, and found out that my authorization is there! 

I advise bugging the insurance company, and your doctor to make sure they are on top of everything! You may feel like you're running into a brick wall , but I was the exact same way (a nervous wreck ) because I am scheduled for the 26th of August as well, and I was waiting on all of my lab work and my doctor submitting the paper work. Keep us updated & good luck!

Nothing yet. I have an appointment this morning. If they can't tell me anything I am going to call. Congrats!  I have my fingers crossed. I told my husband this has been the worst part so far.

Found out I'm approved today!  So excited.  This has been a long journey but worth every step and all the stressing.
