Does insurance cover cranial prosthesis?
People also ask, how do I get my cranial prosthesis covered by insurance?
Most insurance companies will cover between 80-100% of the cost for your full cranial prosthesis and will allow you to receive one cranial prosthesis per year for medical hair loss. Depending on your insurance, your prosthesis may also be a tax deductible medical expense.
People also ask, how can I get my insurance to pay for a wig?
Call Your Health Insurance Provider First Most private health insurance policies will cover at least a percentage of a wig purchase. Before you start wig shopping, call your insurance company and ask about their requirements. The cost of wigs can vary tremendously.
Original Medicare (Part A and Part B) does not usually cover cancer wigs or other hair prostheses. Original Medicare may cover some aspects of cancer treatment, such as certain screenings and chemotherapy. Medicare may also cover other prostheses (not including wigs).
