Wow, I guess I will need to start bleeding money. I FINALLY talked to the lady at the surgeon's office about how much my portion of this whole fiasco will be. She was supposed to have gotten back to me a month ago and left messages sounding irritated when I called to follow up. Anyway, looks like my portion is going to be around $7k since insurance isn't going to cover the genioplasty. So, add that to the $7500 for braces and I could have bought a small car with that! It makes my stomach hurt to think about it. I keep telling myself its a small price to pay for everything they are doing. Thank goodness for finance plans!
