Insurance Coverage

  1. Contact your health insurance provider and ask if your policy covers a “medical cranial prosthesis” (not a wig) for medical hair loss. If it is covered, ask them to explain their specific requirements and procedure to obtain payment for a medical cranial prosthesis. *Note: Some insurance companies will require you to pay for your cranial prosthesis upfront and then be reimbursed.

  2. Ask your physician to write a prescription for a “medical cranial prosthesis” (not a wig) and your specific diagnosis.

  3. Completing insurance forms; We can assist with this process if necessary. The important thing is that we make sure they are filled out correctly and signed by your physician. Usually, you can find the claim forms on the website of your health insurance provider.
