So I've done my 6 month supervised weight loss with my family physician but had a 1 month gap where I had an unplanned surgery. My doctor has submitted a letter to Medicaid to explain why I could not come in at that time. He has sent a letter of medical necessity as well. I have done everything through MUSC; my psych evaluation, nutrition class, surgeon evaluation, approval thru the cardiologist and pulmonologist, all blood tests...everything the hospital has required me to do. Everything is all in a nice little packet waiting for the coordinator to send it in to Medicaid for approval. We have to wait until June the 1st because I changed my health plan and it takes 30 days to take effect......Here comes the waiting game....How long does it usually take to get approval and a surgery date???
