So how long after approval was your surgery scheduled. I received my approval Feb 27 but have to give it 2 weeks for an appeal process. (Workers Comp) They have already scheduled my preop MRI but I have not talked to the surgery scheduler yet. I was just wondering if its something that may be another month or so out?

    My surgeries have been scheduled the day of my appointment, the one where I was told that I had a herniated disc. I always scheduled my surgeries a couple of weeks after that. I have never had any issues with my last insurance company. I don't know how my new one works, haven't needed any surgery yet this year.
