Now I wait.

My journey to a healthier me is beginning.
My insurance (Aetna) company requires a 3-4 month pre-approval Diet/Dr visit/jumping though hoops thing.
  • 4 visits to the Diet Dr.
  • 2 visits with a nutritionist.
  • Psych evaluation.
  • and some various medical tests
I finished last week.
All of my paper work has been submitted to Aetna.

Now I wait....

Cross your fingers for a speedy approval!

  1. I have Aetna as did you get your primary doc. to refer you to a diet doc? I've been BEGGING my primary doc for years to help me with the weight issue. I've asked for prescription pills...I've asked for a referral to a nutritionist...I've requested testing....I've asked and asked and asked for help and all he ever says is "eat less. Move more." Well, dammit, I do. I was down to less than 1,000 cals a day for five months and still GAINING! I can't just go to a diet doc, I have to have a referral. How did you approach your primary to get the referral?
