Appointments that I've made so far and my insurance.

Originally written:  10-06-2012.

I have an appointment for my orientation on the 17th of this month and then I will meet with my surgeon, Dr. Gould, the following Wednesday.  These are at Froedtert, in Milwaukee, WI, which a friend recommended to me.  I've seen the results of her surgery and she is doing great!  I believe her surgeon was Dr. Wallace. 

I have paperwork to fill out and my doctor down here in Beloit, Dr. Tecarro, is going to help me fill it out on the 16th, as I've made an appointment with her already.  I'll probably have her refer me to a nutritionist as my friend said that she needed to see one for six months before the surgeon approved her surgery.  The nurse I talked to said at least three, for Medicare. 

My primary insurance is BlueCross BlueShield through Walmart and they won't cover it(they won't cover anything obesity-related), but Medicare is my secondary and they said they will cover it.


Anyway, I am very excited for all of this to happen!
