    Family Doctor Visit

    I was very nervous about bringing it up to my doctor as well and he ended up being very supportive.

    Ooops I just saw that you had your surgery at St Mary's with Dr.Bautista. I'm with Dr. Carmody. This waiting is torture.

    I qualify on BMI alone as well but still have to jump through the hoops with 3 months supervised diet and exercise, psych eval, etc

    Applied for new insurance today

    Is this a group or individual coverage. If it's individual I don't think they cover bariatric surgery.

    How long is ins auth good for?

    It depends on your insurance company.
