Who else is waiting for insurance approval?

Who else is waiting for insurance approval?  How are you handling the wait? I am so excited to schedule my BR surgery, however I'm waiting on insurance approval.  My PS's office sent in all necessary paperwork last week, so I probably still have a bit of a wait.  I'm thinking positively & trying to wait patiently, and doing research to learn effective ways to make the healing process as easy as possible.  Also planning my next conversation with my PS to make sure we are on the same page as far as desired final size.  My PS is recommending removing at least 750 grams from each breast which he said would bring me to a "C-".  I am hoping for a large B or small C after the healing process is done. Who else has just started this process and is waiting for insurance approval so you can move forward with a surgery date?

so it is completely insane to call twice a day to get updates on an approval? I called this morning and spoke to the same customer service rep as I did on Monday! And I keep taking the customer service survey afterwards rating the reps Excellent, to make sure my karma is good and strong.

I have blue cross blue shield Florida. My qusetion is, I had failed therapy sessions last year, but that was due to a car accident I had, do you think they would take that into consideration, or would I have to go through it again.

my PS submitted paperwork on the 4th. I've been calling every morning at 8am to check on the status. FINALLY today they said they received the paperwork and the medical records were getting reviewed. I will keep calling every morning until they make a decision! BCBS watch out for me!

I just had a consult 2 days ago and my PS said that they will be submitting the packet to the insurance company. I really hope and pray that I get approved soon.

I am currently waiting on approval. I have CIGNA insurance and have heard they are difficult to get approval from. It has been six weeks since my initial consult and I am getting antsy. I called and left a message for the ANP that done my initial consult, but haven't heard anything back yet.

I also just seen my surgeon last week. He said I had a pre approval but what does that even mean? I'm patiently waiting to hear back from them. I think I have googled every thing there is to know about this procedure.

I'm getting very frustrated. I was supposed to hear back from my insurance by yesterday and nothing. I have an online account, so I shouldn't have to wait for it to be mailed. My paperwork was supposed to be sent early Sept and after waiting 2 weeks and hearing nothing I find out that BCBS doesn't have it. So this time I talked to BCBS to make sure they received it. I've already put off the surgery once. I'm getting very discouraged. I have a feeling BCBS is going to try to put me off until the new year so I have to reach my $4K deductible again. Ugh, I feel very sad right now. I did every single thing on their list, I don't see how they couldn't approve me.

I got my approval number this morning!!! My mom called a lady she knows that works at BCBS yesterday. They found out all my paperwork was just sitting in the system and no one was working on it. She got it pushed through yesterday afternoon and I got a call from them this morning apoligizing. I'm so excited!!!

I reoorted another one to kimmers also this not so nice guy might have gotten another account. So frustrating when.... one he doesnt have boobs and 2 can in no way understand the pain we go through on a daily basis.

If he doesnt like scars why is he even on here? Must not mind them too much! They really need to have some way that guy's cant get on here. I know, I know, some men have reductions also. But still.

I agree it's annoying! It may be the same guy because he was telling me he likes my breasts and to not get surgery!

How do we report him? I don't see a report button, but that may be because I am on an iPad.

There isn't one...I emailed kimmers and she took care of it!
