INSURANCE OFTEN HELPS

 

Check Your Policy

 

Many health insurance plans cover part of the ‎cost of medical wigs.‎ How much depends on the individual policy.

 

Please provide us the following details:

 

Patient: Name, Address, Phone Number, DOB (Birth date)

Doctor: Name and a prescription for a “Medical Wig”.

Copies (front and back) of your Insurance Card

 

Insurance companies consider a wig as a ‎prosthetic device (the same as an artificial limb).‎

 

Every Insurance Plan (even Government Insurance) may vary from state to state and between contracts with employers. Find out about your specific policy.

 

Ask the doctor's office for a prescription for a Medical Wig.

 

They can help find out if you are covered and for how much, ‎just like with any other procedure.‎

 

KNOW WHAT TO ASK...

 

TIP: IF THEY DON'T COVER FOR CANCER, ASK IF IT IS COVERED FOR ALOPECIA. THE DOCTOR MAY WRITE IT UP AS "ALOPECIA CAUSED BY CHEMO TREATMENTS". 

 

THE TERM "ALOPECIA" (WITHOUT A TYPE SPECIFIED) REFERS TO ANY HAIR-LOSS. MANY INSURANCE PLANS WILL COVER SOME OF THE COST OF YOUR MEDICAL WIG.

 

HCPCS (The Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System):

for a Medical Wig = D5924‎

for Any Wigs = ‎A9282

 

NOTE: This may also a tax-deductible expense
