First Choice Insurance (through Kroger) Denied Our Gastric Sleeve Surgery

by Chassy
(Arlington, WA)


My husband and I are both scheduled to have gastric sleeve surgery with a surgeon in Washington. We jumped through all the hoops…

– We’ve rescheduled 2 times
– We wrote the perfect appeal letter
– We have many letters to them from Washington’s best gastric surgeon
– We have literally been the perfect candidates

Our surgeries keep getting pushed out, but I wont leave the insurance company alone until they give it to us. After all, even Medicare covers it.

Furthermore, it’s in the insurance company’s best interest – we will end up costing them way more in the long run if we don’t get the procedures.

Our surgeon’s office says to do our pre-surgery diet and just keep our dates as he is going to talk with the insurance company… we will see.

Did they cover it? What hoops do they require pts to jump through normally? My doc referred me to a bariatric surgeon who is requiring me to go to a seminar first before I get to have a consult with them. I have the same insurance so what do they require before we can actually get the procedure? Thanks.
