I called last Thursday and lo and behold, I have been approved for my laparoscopic band surgery! I found this out by logging onto my insurance site. They said the status of pre-authorization for me was Approved/Partially Approved.
Huh? What's the partially part mean? I called them up and asked and the gal I talked to said there was no partial to it on her screen. It was approved. So now I have to sit and wait for my letter to arrive. The clinic won't take my word for it. And I don't want to confuse them with the whole "partially approved," thing.
So here I wait. And of course today is a federal holiday and thus, NO MAIL. Oh damn you, Washington and Lincoln!!!
