Well, I've hit a little bit of a bump in the road.
The appointment I had with the WLS surgeon on the 25th had to be canceled as that particular clinic is out of network with my insurance, but they didn't tell me until 2 days ago.
I immediately reached out to another clinic and they ARE confirmed to be in network. They explained the steps required by my insurance.
First they requested records from my PCP yesterday. Once those are received, they'll schedule a consultation with their WLS, then I'll have to have a psych eval and a nutrition assessment.
So the process is slowed down a little, but I'm determined to make this happen.

While you are waiting, you should also call your insurance and understand their requirements. Don't rely on the medical center to get it all right - you have to be your own advocate and the first step is to be educated on all the requirements.
