Our tips for navigating the insurance process

If you are covered by insurance, you should obtain a written prescription from your doctor. Make sure that the diagnosis code or codes are included. This is very important to achieve insurance coverage!

Request a detailed written letter from your doctor explaining the extent of the (expected) hair loss, and the mental distress that you are or will be experiencing. Ask your doctor to use words as “cranial prosthesis” and “full coverage prosthesis.”

If you’re currently experiancing hair loss, have a picture taken of yourself showing your hair loss, thereby establishing that your claim is not for cosmetic purposes.

Ask us (Glamour Locks) for a sales receipt or invoice with the wording: “Full Cranial Prosthesis”. We are happy to accoaccommodate to ensure your changes of approval by your insurance.

Compose and write a letter that explains the personal emotional effects that your hair loss has on your life. Be persuasive in arguing that a cranial prosthesis is just as medically necessary as a prosthetic limbs.

If you feel comfortable involving your employer, ask them to write a letter explaining the importance of you being comfortable and secure with your appearance at your job!

Note! Save a copy of all the information sent to your insurance for your records.

If you purchase your hair prosthesis through us, please contact us so that we can provide you with an Invoice and the correct information for mailing to your insurance carrier.
