Another tummy tuck/insurance question
So, I did.
And I started calling...and despite them contracting with my insurance company, all the doctors are refusing to work with insurance for any post-weight loss procedures.
I wasn't even aware this was allowed?
Incredibly frustrated. Am I able to file on my own at all?
No, you probably aren't allowed to file on your own, as it has to come from a participating Dr...
HW-218/SW-208/CW-126/ Lowest Weight-121/Goal-125 - hit 8/23/09/Height-5'3"
Regain 30 lbs from 2012 to 2016 - got back on track and lost it. Took 8 months.
90+/- pounds lost BMI - 24 or so
Starting BMI between 35 and 40ish?

I understand that insurance companies reimbursements are crap, but I thought that was the price they paid by being considered in-network.
I met with a couple Dr's when searching for my tummy tuck Dr. The first 2 told me on the phone that they dealt with Ins. Then once at the consults they backtracked and said they didnt deal with it at all. They then proceeded to tell me that no Dr takes ins. or deals with them blah blah. I knew this isnt the truth. He then tried to put me on a payment plan. I walked. I went back to the Dr that did breast lift/augmentation a week later for his consult. After his consult he submitted to Ins with the proper photos and documentation. My insurance called last week and it is covered. I have surgery May 12th. Dont give up and keep searching! Good luck to you!
