Not sure if y'all remember my story but, I work for United Healthcare and under my policy weight loss surgery is not covered. At first the first person I walked to said there was nothing I could do about it. I told my doctor this, she told me that was a lie that I needed to call back and speak to someone else. Well after 2 months and 6 different people I finally talked to someone who told me that I can appeal this. She gave me all the inforamtion about my policy and told me my doctor needed to write a letter and fax it over. She stated there is no promise that they will approve it, but she said "between you and me, it happens" she said it never hurts to try. She advised me to make sure that my doctor wrote a really good letter and stated all the reasons why I needed to surgery. So today my doctor wrote a letter and sent it to my insurance company to appeal the surgery! I'm praying that they accept/approve it and please pray with me or wish me luck.
That's no problem. I am sure that you'd do the same for me. See, it's good that we can come here and share feelings of hurt, pain, discomfort, or anything in that matter here. We are all our sister and brother keepers. Coming here,i expect uplifting and to be held accountable. Anytime you'd like to tlk, just inbox me. btw, that word is john 14:14
I will send up a few prayers for you. I, too, am pre-op and hoping for an approval for surgery. I have a ways to go though. Once I complete all pre-requisites, I'm looking at a Late June/July surgery.
