If your insurance company has prosthesis coverage in your policy, they will tell you the amount you are allowed to spend each year for covered purchases.
The actual coverage amount will be determined by your insurance company. Most insurance companies will cover only a portion that usually starts around $350 & goes up to the thousands.

Preparing For Your Cranial Prosthesis Medical Wig
In preparing for your new hair system, many will cut off any of their own hair that is remaining. We recommend that you do not cut your hair shorter than 1" because the stubble can become irritating. To alleviate any discomfort that you may be feeling on your scalp continue to shampoo and condition your hair according to your normal schedule. Massage your scalp with a facial moisturizer to soothe your scalp.
