Well I have an appeal April 5th.........
So im the post that had been denied by Medicaid. Ends up they needed more documentation showing weight loss over the years. I received all of my medical papers and just am waiting on another letter from my pcp. Regardless im nervous I dont have enough. Anyone have any suggestions on what I can say or bring? I dont have anything from where I went to weigh****chers years ago. But all of my doctor visits show obesity as a factor in my visit. Mark(Im a girl!)
hi mark, not sure about what to tell you about the appeal but what i wanted to say is that i had obesity as a factor in my medical records for a long time to but medicaid still required me to do a six month supervised diet. even after an appeal letter. if you havent done that , i would schedule an appt. with your pcp for your first appt. i also went to a dietician once monthly too just for back up. adrienne
Hey Mark! Sending good thoughts and blessings your way along with prayers that your appeal will be overturned so you can have your surgery. Sorry I am not able to do more...but the power of prayer and positive thinking can work miracles! Nancy
