A Hair prosthesis (or cranial prosthesis), is a custom-made wig specifically designed for patients who have lost their hair as a result of medical conditions or treatments, such as alopecia areata, alopecia totalis, trichotillomania, chemotherapy, or any other clinical disease or treatment resulting in hair loss. The terminology is used when applying for medical insurance or tax deduction status.

While you are awaiting the status of your claim, have your doctor to write you a prescription for a "Cranial Prosthesis". Also on this prescription, have your doctor to include your specific diagnosis. ( For Example: If you have been diagnosed with Alopecia, there are different types. Have your doctor to be very detailed & to include the exact strand/type of medical condition that has caused your hair loss & include a short letter explaining your illness and the effects on your daily life). You will submit this prescription along with your doctor's letter to our company. We will then contact you so that we may submit your claim to your insurance provider.
