For anyone who may going through Chemotherapy treatments or are dealing with some level of emotion due to hair loss or any other condition, I know that this may be a trying time physically and emotionally right now and calling and dealing with reimbursement may seem too much of a task and just another thing to have to deal with. Don't let that stop you from doing something for yourself that could ease some stress at the moment. We at Custom Crowns will help you throughout this process.
A hair piece that can restore your confidence and self-esteem helping your emotional state to heal is just as important as a medication you take to treat nausea. You wouldn't let yourself stay this way without doing something about it - the same goes for honoring yourself enough to get what is due you. FYI: A wig can also be a tax-deductible expense. If you suffered hair loss as a result of a medical condition like cancer or alopecia and you purchase a wig, the IRS allows you to deduct the cost.
Please note: Not all insurance companies cover wigs (cranial prosthesis); however, many do. Your reimbursement will depend on your particular policy details. Some insurance companies may pay up to 50 percent, and others, like Blue Cross which has recently changed its rules, may pay up to only $400. Many times, it really will depends on your policy.
There are no guarantees as not every company reimburses, but you should try. Custom crowns is here to assist you in the process every step of the way
