We are Approved

Amazingly enough, we got our insurance approval without a fight. We got the letter this weekend. Of course, it is never quite as simple as that. The approval was dated for a 60 day approval starting September 3rd. That would mean that by the time her actual surgery happens on November 12th, the preapproval will have expired. The hospital has been alerted, and will get that little mix-up corrected.

Other than that, we are now a GO for surgery on November 12th. Activation will happen two to four weeks later. Rachel will then have lots of speech therapy and hopefully within 6 months or so we will get a good picture of how successful the implant is. A quick process this is not.
