.... and now cancelled....

Jan 04, 2022

Welp, it turned out that my pre-op covid test was positive, so what I thought was the sniffles was a breakthrough omicron case.  Even though I was already recovered, my test was positive, so surgery was cancelled.

Now it's the new year and I have a new insurance carrier (United Health Group), and I'm talking with them about whether we can file for approval using documentation from my other approval (since it was pretty extensive and should cover all the steps they'll want me to take before surgery).

But because our plan is just getting set up, the bariatric support team at UHG doesn't have the requirements yet, so I'm waiting for them to call back when it is available (3 to 5 days).  

 

Hopefully I won't have to start all over again with all the same appointments, months of supervised medical weight loss, etc. since I've done all of that already. Stay tuned...
