Insurance Information
of Confident Reflections™

Some insurance companies will reimburse women for the purchase of a medical cranial hair prosthesis. In the insurance coverage booklet, it may be listed under prosthetic coverage. If you are unable to find it in the healthcare coverage booklet, it may be a good idea to give them a call for more detailed information.

Most insurance companies will require a prescription from your physician or oncologist for a medical cranial hair prosthesis. Many of the companies will not cover wigs and it will be important to have the correct wording (medical cranial hair prosthesis) in the prescription in order to get reimbursement.

It is also suggested that you obtain a letter of medical necessity from your physician, oncologist, or dermatologist. This will be an explanation of the need for the medical cranial hair prosthesis and the medical cause for the loss of hair. It will also be necessary to provide a paid receipt for the medical cranial hair prosthesis for the insurance company.

Information necessary for insurance reimbursement:

  • A Prescription for a medical cranial hair prosthesis from your physician
  • A letter of medical necessity from your physician
  • A paid receipt for the medical cranial hair prosthesis
  • A confirmation of prosthetic coverage from the insurance company
