VSG Weight Loss Surgery Update

Hi everyone! I know it has been awhile but I have been busy working on everything I need to do to get my approval for weight loss surgery. Earlier this month, I went to the Bariatric Seminar (the second one I’ve been to) and received information about the surgery and the steps I needed to achieve to get an approval from my insurance company, which is Tricare Prime. A week later, I went and had my first consultation with the surgeon. A lot of the tests I needed for my insurance company were completed a few weeks prior so I brought that information along with me (EKG, endoscopy results, chest x-rays, and recent lab results). The only things I needed in order to submit a request for approval from my insurance company was an Upper GI test, Psychological Evaluation, and a Nutrition Consultation. I had my upper GI done a couple of weeks ago and my psych eval, which I passed, a couple of days ago. I am currently waiting on an appointment with the nutritionist and the soonest appointment she has is a month away. I am aggravated that it is so far away because it is the last thing I need to complete for a surgery date (pending approval) but what can I say? They are a busy office; however, I will be calling and checking for cancellations on a regular basis.
