Once you submitted to your insurance, how long did it take to hear back?  And what insurance provider do you have?

Thanks in advance!

I had Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts and I heard back in less than a week.  My hospital expected it to be fast, as they scheduled my surgery for 2 weeks after I finished the required pre-op diet, and there was no problem making it happen.

I did call them regularly to find out, and I did not receive the official letter until about a week after I finished the surgery! hehehe

Best of luck with your weight loss journey.

If you have Aetna, they legally have 21 business days to let you know. Typically though you know within 10 business days

My coordinator turned in all the information Wednesday, July 3 and I got a call on my cell phone on Tuesday, July 9 telling me I was approved.  I think it may have even been quicker if it were not the 4th of July weekend.  Plus I was out of town on vacation and they may have tried to call me at home first too. 

I have a version of Cigna
