Did you know that If a person requires a "cranial hair prosthesis" while undergoing alopecia or cancer-related therapy they may be eligible for reimbursement under their health insurance plan? Insurance Companies are realizing more and more that a cranial hair prosthesis is a necessity for those suffering with alopecia or undergoing cancer treatments. If you need to wear a wig because of medical reasons like alopecia or cancer-related therapy then the "wig" should be called a "cranial hair prosthesis" particularly for insurance purposes. If you file an insurance claim for reimbursement for a "wig" instead of a "cranial hair prosthesis" you will very likely be turned down. Most insurance companies cover between 80% to 100% of a cranial hair prosthesis
Guidelines for Filing Initial Insurance Claims
Most insurance policies cover "Prescribed Cranial Prosthesis" but do not cover wigs.
Insurance companies cover the cost under HCPCS (Healthcare Common Procedure Coding Systems) procedure codes S8095 and A9282
Get a letter and/or prescription from your doctor.
Make sure that the letter or prescription is for "Prescribed Cranial Prosthesis"
It should not say wig-if it does, have it redone, otherwise your claim will most likely be refused.
Have a receipt from the company where you purchased the Cranial Prosthesis. Make sure it says "Prescribed Cranial Prosthesis."
Have the physician sign off on the insurance claim form.
When filing an insurance claim for a cranial prosthesis, you must include the provider's Tax ID #.
Not including this information is one of the reasons an insurance company will deny the claim
When filing a claim, make sure all the necessary codes are legible and clearly printed on the receipt or claim form.
If the insurance company can't read it, they will deny the claim and not even bother to tell you why your claim was denied
Waiting for Your Claim To Be Processed
prepare yourself for having your claim denied:
Know your rights as the insured party.
Obtain a copy of your FULL contract with your carrier
most people only have a "Summary of Benefits" provided by the employer
Read and know your contract
A: Pay attention to the "exclusions" Wigs are excluded for cosmetics reasons. B: Pay special attention to Prosthesis coverage. Most policies do not spell out exclusions under Prosthesis, and this is how you are likely to have your claim accepted
Submitting Your Appeal
after denial of claim as not a covered benefit
Write asking for a review by the Medical Review Board.
Attach copy of original claims.
In your letter, inform them of the difference between a wig and Prosthesis.
A wig is a fashion item and not a necessity. Prosthesis is a necessity comparable to plastic surgery for a burn victim
Ask for a written reply
Companies try to avoid putting anything in writing
Address your letter to a supervisor in the Claim Department.
Some Other Optional Suggestions Are
Keep copies of your sales invoice (s) for your cranial prosthesis as your full cranial prosthesis may also be a tax deductible medical expense. These steps are just for your reference. Remember to follow the procedures outlined by your insurance company to receive the maximum benefit possible
Include a letter from your employer
Take pictures of yourself without hair
Hand write a letter detailing the emotional effects that your condition has had on your life.
Grants/Other Helpful Information:

0 friends, 2 reviews, 5.0 star rating 1/29/2017. I highly recommend Lisa - she took the time to work with me and find a perfect wig I feel very comfortable in. Losing your hair is stressful and I needed more advice than I could get by just browsing styles online. She taught me how to wear and care for a wig and made me feel much more confident with the whole thing. She is a pro, and her heart is in it. Very glad I found her!

0 friends, 1 review, 5.0 star rating 5/20/2016. Lisa Stoneback has been a Godsend. During the challenge of dealing with "chemo hair," my medical practitioner referred me to Lisa's Selah Hair and Wig Salon. What a relief! Lisa answered all my questions about what hair goes through in the chemo process and gave me a realistic expectation about the time frame on the road "back to normal." No one in the medical community was able to enlighten me as insightfully as she did. Not to mention that I found the perfect Godiva wig in her private salon to get me through the transition. It was so "right" and so comfortable that I now own three of them! My sincere thanks to Lisa for her professionalism, support, and spiritual encouragement. I have been in very good hands!

0 friends, 1 review, 5.0 star rating 5/17/2016. I have been going to A Selah Hair and Wig Salon now for over 20 years and always walk away with an amazing cut and color from Lisa. My most favorite experience here was actually with my mom. My mom was not blessed with great hair and is not in good health. Her hair is very, very thin and basically you can not do anything with it. My poor mom would never go out of the house because she was embarrassed of her hair. When I found out that Lisa brought in a wig line I quickly made an appointment for my mom. Lisa had the room all set up with styles that I told her my mom liked ahead of time and made my mom feel so comfortable while she tried on the wigs. Lisa customized the wig style exactly to my mom's liking. My mom looked years younger and for the first time in a long time she felt pretty again. I remember walking my mom to her car and she got in and started to cry. It has given her a freedom to get out and about again with out feeling so embarrassed. No matter how young or old we are, we always like to feel like we look good. She was so happy with her new wig that we bought two different ones. Long story short, Lisa is amazing and her wigs are beautiful. I highly recommend A Selah Hair and Wig Salon. Thanks again!

0 friends, 1 review, 5.0 star rating 4/25/2016. Scheduled an appoint here for my mother who recently started chemotherapy. Lisa had us send a picture of my mother prior to the appointment so she could have wigs already set-up close to her color and style. It made it very easy! It was a small private room, and she took the time to make my mom comfortable and at ease. She was extremely helpful and

Lisa at A Selah is absolutely amazing! I started chemo treatment for breast cancer a couple weeks ago and my hair started falling out much sooner than I anticipated. Lisa went the extra mile to stay late and take me the day I called her. I simply sent her a recent picture and when I got to the salon she had a bunch of wigs picked out for me. We found the perfect one (shape, length, color, price) and she cut my hair right at that time. She also trimmed the wig to fit my face better. I walked out with the new wig and my husband said it just looked like I went to the salon and got a hair cut. Lisa was very helpful with answering all my questions and preparing me for what's to come. We did a video chat with my sisters who helped me make my wig selection and supported me through the shock of such immediate hair loss. Thank you Lisa for making such an emotional experience one that was fun and stress free!

I recently took my mother in law to see Lisa at, A Selah Hair and Wig Salon. My first impression when I walked in was how private and comfortable the sitting room is. You don't have to feel like everyone is watching you try on wigs. Lisa took her time explaining all you need to know about wigs even if this isn't your first one. She helped us pick the perfect style and color. We left very content with the wig and overwhelmed with the incredible service we received. I highly recommend Lisa at A Selah!! Customer Service, Environment, Other, Quality, Wait Time. A great experience. Thanks Lisa!
