Medical Wigs Insurance

Our Objective

is to assist you in selecting one of our wigs, finding the most suitable solution for you, and doing so with a compassionate approach that reminds you that you're not alone. Experiencing hair loss, whether due to conditions like alopecia or cancer, can be distressing and emotionally exhausting. Our mission is to offer you the best possible service and experience.

In Australia,

wigs may be considered a medical necessity for individuals undergoing chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or suffering from conditions such as alopecia areata, which causes hair loss. Some private health insurance policies might cover the cost of wigs in these cases, but it depends on the policy terms and conditions.

Insurance policies and regulations can change, always rely on the most recent information from your insurance provider or relevant authorities.

When dealing with medical insurance and coverage for specific items like wigs, it's important to:

Check Your Policy: Review your insurance policy documents to understand whether wigs are covered and under what circumstances.

Contact Your Insurance Provider: Reach out to your insurance provider directly to inquire about the coverage for wigs related to your specific medical condition. They can provide you with accurate and current information.

Obtain Medical Documentation: You might need a doctor's prescription or recommendation stating that a wig is medically necessary for your condition.

Claim Process: If wigs are covered under your insurance plan, ensure you understand the claim process, required documentation, and any deductibles or out-of-pocket expenses you might incur.
