and...

My insurance has to be the insurance that costs 237.00 a month. To save me some money, I am able to use the "normal" 45.00 a month insurance until January - because I can change to the expensive insurance during open enrollment in November. But I'm stuck with that expensive insurance for an entire year.

Bummer, to say the least. But I called my oral surgeon and she said that I can schedule my surgery in March. Wahoo!

Does anyone know - is that enough time for the appeal process? Or should I start appealing come January?

I was told that an appeal takes 30 days. But I'm not sure if there are additional stages after that. I think you can go to the state regulator for further appeals once you've exhausted your options with the insurance company itself.
