| | I have BCBS of IL, and have had WLS
It took me a year, but know I know the logic they use to get approved. In many ways, I understand why they took this approach. The people who review are very candid and helpful when you quiz them on what the hang up is. I found the Medical Director physician willing to assist me when my Benefits Dept asked her to call me. As a result of their help, I was approved and had my surgery on Feb 8 after 5 appeals.
