INSURANCE >:-(

I went for a ps consult 2 weeks ago, and just found out today that my insurance company will require more documentation before they'll even consider covering the surgery.  They want a few months of documented pain, rashes, etc, and treatment that goes along with that. Possibly physical therapy/chiropractic care.  Things we all know don't shrink boobs!  lol  I'm currently 5'5",  155 lbs.  I've lost 20 lbs over the last few years, and my cup size does not shrink, just the band.  Right now I'm a 34ddd.  I have a hard time finding bras with a large cup size and smaller band.  I was a full c until pregnancy and breastfeeding, when hormones ran wild!  I work out regularly, in great shape.  I'm continuing to lose weight with no breast shrinkage.  My ps estimated to put me around a full c, which I'm ok with. Any tips on expediting this process, or getting the documentation needed?  I'm so frustrated.

I was rejected last year because I needed a "rash creme". As if that was going to stop the pain in my neck, back and head or the tingling and loss of use in my hands and arms. I really had to jump through hoops and scheduling appointments in advance was crazy. I have been fighting with this for over a year. The best thing I can tell you is to make sure you tell your doctors everything and to document all your complaints from the moment they happen so that they are in your medical records. Then you have a basis for approval. I just got mine, but only because not only did I do all of this, but also called the insurance company to complain about chest pain and nauseousness from the weight on my rib cage.

Oh, now THAT is frustrating! I don't blame you one bit. Those insurance companies really make youu jump through hoops, don't they? What kind of insurance do you have? Wish I had some answers for you, but the most I can offer you is just support. I am just beginning my quest for 'normal boobs' -- LET'S SEE WHO GETS THERE FIRST!! My consult in on April 5th. Keep on trying...
