Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer to that question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I discover an good answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably can answer it..
Yes, the waiting is horrible. I started the process in January and finally got my.
July 26. Sounds like the waiting is almost over for you though. Welcome to the site..
You have a great weekend too...
Welcome to the group and I am lucky I started the process in Sept and my surgury is November 17 but even waiting that was so hardbut we are all here for you..
Aw! Thanks everyone!.
It does feel like it's slowly creeping it's way towards the real thing!.
Sadly we had a massive overtaking at our insurance company, and according to them, "there's a massive backlog"..
I can be a patient waiter though, right?!..
I'm still pre-op, and I've been in this process since March, when I had my first surgical consult. We submitted everything to insurance for approval on 30 September. I've been on pins and needles waiting for the prior auth to come in. I'm hoping for a.
Date before Thanksgiving. Welcome to the group..
Welcome! I started in July and my.
Date is Nov 3. Insurance is usually the hold up, but this time they approved within 48 hours and the weight management dropped the ball. I started calling on Thursday and got all my dates today. I did have to be persistant and tell them that not returning my calls was just making me upset. Of course they said, "what calls?".
Anyway, GOOD LUCK & WELCOME!..
I agree with PatriciaG! The waiting is definately the worst. My.
Is next wednesday the 20th. It has been a long road but I can see the end. It will be faster than you know it. Good luck and keep everyone posted on how it is going! :)..
Seems like you have jumped through most of the hoops already! Good luck!..
Argh, the hoops indeed!.
After the 50th missed call, 3rd missed deadline (on their part), and weeks worth of lost.
And "misunderstandings", I marched into both my doctors office and the insurance office and said, "I'm willing to jump through each and every circus hoop you put in front of me, but you've got to TELL me there a hoop!".
When I finally reached people who were serious about me, things fell into place..
It makes me wonder if insurances and physicians have a lot of patients who start this then give up because it's complicated, time consuming, and disheartening..
No one mentioned the hula hoops when starting this process! At least it's trimming my waist! ;)..
You are living proof assertiveness in getting what you need is a must. It sets a positive pattern for your WLS journey as well as your life. You go girl!..
