HEALTH COVERAGE FOR HAIR
Many health insurance companies include coverage for Cranial Prosthesis. If your insurance plan states that it covers prosthesis of any type and does not specifically exclude Cranial Prosthesis, you could be reimbursed up to 100%.
If your prosthesis is not covered under insurance, you can claim the cost as a medical tax deduction with proper documentation.
The following steps can help you get the proper reimbursement.
Your doctor will need to provide you with a prescription/letter that it is medically necessary for your cranial prosthesis. (I.e. Wig)
You need a claim form from your insurance provider.
The proper medical code for the Cranial Prosthesis is required.
Some insurance companies require a paid in full receipt that is signed by the salon owner.
Another common question
What if I have to have Chemotherapy what happens to my hair?
Depending on the chemotherapeutic agent you may develop hair loss.
Drugs target rapidly-growing cells in the body. These drugs cannot distinguish between cancer cells and other fast-growing cells such as hair follicles. Hair loss can begin anytime but typically 7-21 days after the chemotherapy treatment.
It is important to consult with us right away so we can help you before your hair loss begins.
We have a private by appointment only environment or we can come to you for a consultation and work with your individual needs.
