I'm kinda in denial about my denial! Well, actually I've accepted in and feel like I'll never be approved and need to come up with another plan. I was denied due to a lack of a 2 year history of obesity and lack of 6 months worth of doctors visits. Actually based on the insurance's criteria of a BMI of 35 with comorbidities, I qualify...not understanding this at all. I submitted another doctor visit, so I should be covered as far as that goes.
I have been dreading a call to my surgeon's insurance rep but made that call today. I asked her about a peer to peer consultation. She said that she submitted an appeal 2 days ago....she thought that is what was discussed when we last spoke. I was excited to hear that. She apologized for not calling earlier to communicate that the paperwork was sent off. I was excited to hear that it was sent! She anticipated another 30-60 day wait to hear anything.
I have been considering what other options to look into as far as weight loss goes. I guess my plan for now will be to wait until I hear word about the appeal. Maybe the planets will properly align and I'll get approved! hey....a girl can dream can't she!
