Recommended Posts

I found out recently that I will have a December date. Sooo, I thought it'd be a good time to get to know some people on a similar timeline.

I'll be getting my surgical clearance and last NUT visit next week then submit to insurance. My surgeon is injured so I have to wait until December for surgery.

When did you guys start this process?

It happened real fast for me, I went to the seminar in September, my appointment with the surgeon was Monday, and they gave me my folder with everything in it, the date for surgery, the lab paperwork, the upper GI paperwork, the numbers for the psych eval (next Tuesday), the nutrition class (21st of Nov), and the start of my 3-week preop diet, (Nov. 25th). 

 

I think that's why I'm still at the "WOW, this is really happening" phase.

My nurse coordinator at aetna called today to tell me she still hasn't seen a request for approval from my surgeon's office. It's normally entered within 48 hours of them getting it. She called to give them the fax number to the reviewer for my case. I hope they send it over soon so I can get a date. They were supposed to send it on Thursday. It feels like this is taking forever. I'm so ready to start my new and improved life.

I know how you feel I have been waiting since last monday for the sugeon's office to send it in. I was told by the end of this week but I doubt it.

So happy for you! I wish I had an exact date! I wont know until after my appointment with the medical director on the 12th, then she sends me to see the surgeon to get a date, I'm praying for a mid December date. I had heard through another patient that a lot of people are trying to get there surgeries before the end of the year because of insurance changes or deductibles resetting. Makes sense. I just hope I'm one of the lucky ones to get a date sooner rather then later!!

I'm hoping for a December date! Depends on if I can speed things up at the cardiologist office with my sleep study. My follow up isn't scheduled until 11/27 even though my last pre-surgeon appt at main office is the 13th. I'm on the cancellation list and I have an inside source at the office, so I have my fingers crossed! 

Once all of my paperwork is turned in then I can see the surgeon and it'll get sent to insurance for approval. Two coworkers who went thru the same office (and obviously have same insurance) took about two weeks to get approval and had a surgery date of about two weeks later.
