The Waiting Game
Jan 21, 2010So my husband received his referral within a week of submitting all the paperwork to the physician's office. My physician's office submitted my paperwork to the insurance company on 12/24/09 and I have still not heard from the insurance company if I am approved for surgery. I am a little frustrated because I expected mine to come as quick as my husbands but no such luck. I have been ill lately with other health issues so getting on top of this referral has not been my number 1 priority. I will call them on Monday if I haven't heard anything yet since they said it could take up to 15 business days plus there were holidays in there. I am hoping to have the surgery scheduled in early April (since by the time I get the referral, get the pre-op scheduled, and get my pre-op diet on it will be a couple months). Wish me luck in obtaining the referral....hoping it comes soon. BTW, my husband had surgery 10/30/2009 and he is already down 90 lbs (30 before surgery, 60 since). I am so proud of him I can not tell you how much I admire and love him! my ever shrinking knight he is!
