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.

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
