Wig Reimbursement

Did you know that your insurance may cover the cost of a wig?

If a person requires a "cranial hair prosthesis" while undergoing Alopecia or cancer-related therapy, they may be eligible for reimbursement under their health insurance plan? If you need to wear a wig because of medical reasons like Alopecia and cancer-related therapy than the "wig" should be called a "cranial hair prosthesis" for insurance purposes?
If you file an insurance claim for reimbursement for a "wig" instead of a "cranial hair prosthesis" you will very likely be turned down? Most insurance companies cover between 80 to 100% of a cranial prosthesis? Insurance Companies are realizing your cranial hair prosthesis are more and more a necessity for those recovering from Alopecia and cancer treatments.

Contact your insurance company for more information on your health care plan.
