24 HOURS for TVH, A&P and Tummy tuck?!!!

Went for my pre-admission testing yesterday. Found out that my idiotic insurance company will only approve a 24 hour stay for a TVH, anterior/posterior repair, rectum repair, and full abdominoplasty! I am in shock. Not sure who died and made insurance people gods and/or doctors. Has anyone else dealt with this? My surgery is Friday, March 15th. THIS friday! Help!:burning:

Dear Lillith,

Except for the abdominoplasty, I had everything that you had, and I was only in the hospital for a little over 24 hours. In my case, I was more than ready to come home, but please don't worry - your doctor won't release you until and unless he feels that you are able to go home. He or the hospital staff will be on the phone with your insurance company and will get additional approval if it is needed.

I'm home on my lunch break, so have to make this quick, but did want to try to reassure you that you won't get sent home without your doctor's approval.

Why don't you call the doctor's office today andtell them about it, too. They should be able to reassure you, too.

Gotta run,

's

Lillith,

This is pretty common for the insurance to preapprove only one night for a hyst...notice the prefix PRE. They go ahead with approving that one night and then add on extra nights as the dr says you need them.

Same thing happened with me. I had to spend 2 nights. The dr said I had to stay the 2nd one and the hospital gave the insurance a call and the 2nd one was approved. If he had told me more nights, they would have approved those too.

I don't have any experience with a TVH, but I do with a tummy tuck. Believe it or not most tummy tucks are out patient surgery. I was only in hospital for a 1 and a half days and I was soooo ready to come home. Best wishes to you.
