Hi, I posted about possibly getting a breast reduction a little while ago. I am not overweight, but I havd 34DDs.
We are seriously considering this surgery. I have been to urgent care for painkillers and muscle relaxers last week. I met with a GP this week who gave me a referral to a plastic surgeon. I meet with him next week.
My SO and I called our insurance company last night and it seems I need to document my pain for a year before I can get approved for a breast reduction. Did anyone else have this rule that the insurance company bypassed early? Was anyone approved right away for a breast reduction? I’m mainly curious because the customer service rep couldn’t seem to guaruntee that I would need to document it for a year even though it is one of their rules for the surgery.
Did anyone have a similar rule about gathering a year of documentation for the insurance company first? I had this back pain in 2007-2008 in which I had X-rays, went to the Chiropractor, and had several visits until I lost health insurance in 2008. I was still in pain from 2009-2010, but I just recently got health insurance this fall. Would they put into consideration my past back pain? I couldn’t afford to go to the doctor before when I didn’t have health insurance, but would they see that as I was cured in 2008? Or, that it wasn’t “chronic”? Thanks!
