How to Successfully Process Wig Insurance Claims
If you have been diagnosed with a condition which results in hair loss such as Alopecia Areata or are being treated with chemotherapy then you will probably want to wear a wig. Wigs can be used to conceal hair loss and make yourself much more confident.
Claiming on Insurance
If you have need for a medical wig then you will find that they are very expensive. This is because these medical wigs are customised to your own face and features. As these wigs are so expensive it’s worth trying to claim on your health insurance.
Before you can claim on insurance you will need to get a diagnosis from your doctor. Visit your doctor for a professional diagnosis so that you can then use this information to apply to your insurance company.
Filing the Claim
When you have the doctor’s note you can then contact your insurance company. There will quite often be a few forms to complete. You will then need to file the forms and wait for the insurance company to assess your claim and let you know the outcome.
Choosing the Wig
It’s important that you spend time choosing the right wig for yourself. Normally you will want to make sure that these wigs look as natural as possible. For this to be the case you should choose a colour of wig which is close to your natural hair colour.
Also think about the cut that you want for the wig. This can be changed by a hairdresser to make it more suitable for you to wear.
