I have so many questions! My paper work was sent to Aetna on Thursday and I am totally freaking out! I have been creeping on this site for quite some time. Everyone seems so knowledgeable and supportive and who doesn't need that in their lives? So here is a little bit about me, I am 37 whole 5’5” (almost 5’6”) and 375 lbs. I have sleep apnea, left ventricle hypertrophy and heart failure; all which is new to me with in the year. So I guess my question is… Should I expect a denial from Aetna? I am prepared for a NO and hoping for a YES. But like everything I have encountered in my life I am sure I will have to put up a fight even though I “qualify “by their (Aetna) terms. So if anyone has had to deal with Aetna it would be nice if you could give me some insight on what is to be expected and is it possible that I will get an approval the first try? I thank anyone in advance for the comments or answers.
New with lots of questions!

Hi and welcome! I don't know about Aetna's policies but it would definitely be approved through Kaiser with BMI over 40 and even more so with co-morbidity Sleep Apnea etc... I hope you get a big YES soon! And welcome from this newbie - it's amazing here!

call aetna and ask on your specific policy, its very relieving to know this information
