College student a good candidate? *newbie*

Hi there. I'm new to the forum, and joined because I had a few questions for people who've already gone through or are going through the application process to get their reduction covered by their insurance. I have United Healthcare, and I'm going to try and see if I can get covered. I've been seriously wanting this for the past 3 or 4 years, but it's been on my mind for longer than that. I'm going to be a sophomore in college in August, so I'm not very old, not all that young. I hit puberty pretty early, around 9, and my boobs started to grow large and fast. I believe I was a C cup in 6th grade. I attended physical therapy twice for back and neck pain in middle and high school, so I have a history of medical issues related to my large bust. Now I'm a 38F (DDD). I'm 5'5" and weigh 186 lbs. I know I'm overweight and I've been working on that. I read that a lot of people aren't even considered if their BMI isn't under 30, and mine is 30.9. Should I hold off on starting this process until I can get under a BMI of 30? Losing weight has proven pretty difficult for me - I think I've been trying to since 6th grade when I started gaining. Would working with my doctor to get my weight down and then applying be a better option, or should I start the application process while losing weight? Do you think I have a good chance of getting approved for the surgery? I really need this - my bust is such a hindrance and literal pain to me. I would really love to go down from the F (DDD) I am now to at least a C, if I can.
