hey guys, i currently suffer with an underbite and overcrowding in lower teeth, and it's to the point i actually need jaw surgery to realign my teeth and get braces on top of that as well.

i wanted to know if my case is deemed as a medical necessity because my health insurance will be able to cover the surgery if it is, and i'm quite not sure if my case really is a medical necessity because i don't suffer with sleep apnea or tmj, so please let me know what you think. i am also not sure if surgeons will consider how severe the bite is to make it medical necessity.

In the US, any insurance carrier is in the business of making money and will find a way to deny covering that treatment. Look into the carrier's coverage details. I had a crown denied after 2 months of completing it.
