In brief: Work with surgeon

Your insurance company may require your TMJ surgeon to get preauthorization for surgery and provide documents regarding your condition.
Authorization does not mean 100% of all the costs associated with your surgery will be paid. Check your plan, call your insurance company.

In brief: TMJSurgery Insurance

Most med insurance covers TMJ surgery.
Check your eob (explanastion of benefits). Most require a pre-authorization including diagnosis, pertinent x-rays, and proof of failure of non-surgical treatment. If due to a motor vehicle injury, the auto insurance may cover the treatment.
