Want to get a medical wig? Here's how:
Contact your insurance to see if your benefits cover wigs for hair loss.
If they do:
Step 1: Find out how much they cover and how many wigs per year.
Step 2: Contact your doctor or dermatologist and ask them for a diagnosis for cranial prosthesis.
Step 3: Book a consultation with Shadae Renee and get the process started.
You will be able to purchase a wig and get reimbursed by your insurance company. We are an out of network provider so we accept all insurances except medicaid.
If they don't:
Step : Wait until your open enrollment period and buy into these benefits to your insurance plan.
Step 2: Wait until the benefits are added in order for your insurance to cover the medical wig.
You can still purchase a wig but your insurance will not cover it.
Also please note that Medicaid is NOT covered.
