Hey there! I'm also in Austin looking to get going with a breast reduction soon. Would you mind telling me which insurance you have? I have BCBS of TX and I haven't yet heard of anyone being successfully approved on that insurance... Good luck!

Hi! I went through the insurance process twice. Both times took about a month for the denial or approval. my first insurance, BC/BS of TX, denied it flat-out. I didn't fight it because we moved within about 6 months after (out of state/change of insurance). Current insurance is PHCS and they approved it in about 3 weeks (ish). Good luck!!
