LOS ANGELES, Feb. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Once they've been approved for a procedure like a gastric sleeve or lap band, Los Angeles residents will often ask their insurance companies to cover part or all of the procedure's cost. Unfortunately, despite their medical need for weight loss surgery, Beverly Hills Physicians has seen its fair share of insurance claims rejections. The leading medical network in Southern California doesn't want those who are rejected to give up hope; that's why Beverly Hills Physicians has rounded up some advice from around the 'net for those hoping insurance will cover weight loss surgery cost.
You're Not Alone
Pam Davis of the Obesity Action Coalition says it best, "you are not the first person to be denied approval for weight-loss surgery by your insurance; nor will you be the last." In a world where many insurance agencies operate on numbers and figures, it is not uncommon to get rejected due to an administrative error or because of a miscommunication.
The specialists at Beverly Hills Physicians have years of experience when it comes to dealing with insurance companies. They can easily scan your rejection notice and application, find out if any mistakes were made, and do their best to correct them.
It Doesn't Hurt to Try Again
A recent article published on CNNMoney suggests a 3-step course of action for those who have been denied by their insurer. The first, as echoed above, is to look for errors. The second is to get your doctor on your side (at the very least provide a written note) in order to make a stronger case for an appeal. Beverly Hills Physicians is more than willing to help in these instances.
Because the BHP bariatric surgeons are leaders in their industry, they only recommend these procedures when medically necessary. They are confident in the medical urgency of weight loss surgery and they can easily make the case that non-invasive methods have been attempted and failed. These board certified physicians will do their best to make sure this second request is successful.
The final step listed in the CNN article is to ask for a third request if again rejected; it says, "you have the right to request a review by an independent panel" after your second denial. There is no financial harm in asking the company for a third request, and Beverly Hills Physicians will make sure that your case is as thorough as possible.
Beverly Hills Physicians is Here to Help
When the doctors at BHP believe that a patient's best course of action is to get weight loss surgery, they will exhaust every resource to help. If, in the end, insurance won't cover a procedure, then the BHP team will work alongside the bariatric surgery hopeful to get them the financing they need. The support staff at Beverly Hills Physicians is incredibly helpful, putting their experience to work in order to find financing at a rate that can match practically any budget.
