  1. Hello Everyone! Has anyone had their surgery at UVA Charlottesville? Once my insurance approves the surgery I will be having it with Dr. .Schirmer? I have heard good things online through reviews, but would like to hear from actual people. As well. Thank you so much!
  2. I just saw your posts. Thank you for the sweet welcome everyone! I appreciate it!
  3. Good Afternoon, I hope everyone is well today! I have finished all of my pre-qualifications. I did my 6 months with my PCP for supervised weight loss My PCP wrote a very persuasive letter of Medical necessity stating I am morbidly obese with a BMI of 44, prediabetic, have high cholesterol, arthritis in my knees, and he feels this will be the best option for me to get my health under control. I have PCOS and irregular cycles (Which the doctor noted in the letter as well.) I found out over the weekend I have sleep apnea requiring a CPAP machine (Completed a sleep study) I passed my pysch evaluation (he is finishing dictating the report from last week and should be done by tomorrow) Has anyone been approved through anthem health keepers plus - Medicaid? (I'm in VA, not sure if that makes a difference) I am so nervous now that I am done with everything and it will be in the insurance's hands this week. Thank you so much.
  4. Hi everyone I'm new to the board. I'm in the process of working on my requirements for weightloss surgery using Virginia Medicaid Anthem Health Keepers Plus. I've already met with the surgeon and he said I'm a perfect candidate for the surgery, I have only 1 more appointment with my PCP in August, I've met with pulmonary to conduct a sleep apnea test which should be in the next couple of weeks, and i have my physc evaluation next month. Has anyone been approved with ANTHEM health keepers plus and Virginia Medicaid? if so how long did the approval prices take? Or what was your outcome? Thank you so much.
