    • To help expedite the process, I can also check some insurance benefits prior to your appointment.
    • Fill out the form providing your insurance information and schedule an appointment with me for a cranial prosthesis consult. 
  • Will my insurance cover my cranial-prosthesis(medical wig)?

    Did you know there are various reasons for hair loss? Some of them include heredity, vitamin deficiencies, hypertension, stress, lupus, cancer, and more. Have you had any tests done by your doctor that may indicate a medical condition(determined through blood work or some other tests)? Depending on your policy, most insurance companies cover between 50 to 100% of a cranial prosthesis if you are wearing a wig for medical reasons and experiencing medical hair loss.
