Anyone with CareFirst Blue Cross Insurance?
« on: July 24, 2007, 03:55:30 AM »
hey everyone,
I was wondering if anyone has Care First Blue Cross insurance and if so, how long it took for you to get approval for ACI?  My surgeon's office said that I should get approved pretty quickly, but I have heard so many stories about how it takes forever to get approval.  I think I'm a pretty good candidate for the procedure.  I am 31 years old, my lesion is on the medial femoral condlye (it is a moderate sized lesion) and I am in a healthy weight range for my height.  I had to switch insurance companies with my work as my other health insurance company would not approve for me to go the surgeon that I wanted to see.  So, as of Sept. 1, Blue Cross will go into effect for me and then my OS's office will begin the process for me to get approved.  If you have had any experience with Care First, I would appreciate you telling me how long your approval process took.  Thanks.
