Well, I received the letter from the insurance company requesting more information yesterday. Needless to say I am stressing. When I talked with Rebecca the R.N. for the program she made it sound like they just wanted more of a history at my diet failures. When I read the letter it looks like they want the information with the last two years. Which my last Dr supervised diet ended in June 2008. I was so worried about this. I am not giving up. No way. I am going to pull my insurance records and gather up the information of when I saw the nutritionist. When I went to the gym. What they are requesting is "Clinical documentation of attempts to lose weight by non-operative means, including self directed dieting, nutritional counseling or commercial or hospital based weight loss programs within the past two years". Yes, that part was in bold. :(
As Rebecca says, stay on diet, stay on diet. I did just that and I am still doing that. I am ready and will continue to do my part to make surgery a success.
Crossing my fingers and toes still.
Have a great day!
