In brief: 2 standard deviation

The quick answer is that you need to be below 2 standard deviations for your height and weight.
You may also need a specific diagnosis such as idiopathic growth hormone deficiency, intrauterine growth retardation, etc. Insurance companies usually publish these criteria if you do an internet search.
