Here are a few points to keep in mind as we go through the insurance approval process together:
- The insurance coverage approval process typically takes some time, at least a couple of weeks. We are working hard on your behalf, corresponding with the insurance provider and providing documentation and other requested information.
- Sometimes women run into challenges because their insurance plan changes while they are seeking surgery approval. If your insurance changes in the middle of the surgery approval process, it’s important for you to request a continuation of care in order to receive services as per your former plan for a designated period of time. Be sure to find out the timeframe you have to file for continuity of care if your insurance coverage changes; typically, it’s required within three months.
- We will communicate with you throughout the insurance approval process. If you don’t hear from us for a few days it’s because we are in the process of submitting information or waiting for your insurance provider to respond. We know it can be an anxious time – try to understand if you don’t hear from us immediately. We are here working hard for you, and we will keep you posted!
