Full Cranial Prosthesis for Women Experiencing Hair Loss:

Dare Lace Wig Supplier also provides full cranial prosthesis (full lace wigs) for women suffering from long term or permanent hair loss due to a medical condition such as chemotherapy, alopecia, Trichotillomania, or other medical conditions.

Our natural hair prostheses are the latest development in hair replacement units. They are designed to meet the specific needs of any women suffering from hair loss. Our wigs are form-fitted to become part of you, and designed to be styled as if it were your own hair. The wigs are made to look and feel natural. No one will know it is a wig. They are made with 100% Indian Remy Human Hair, and can be parted and styled in any way that you desire.

How to Apply for Health Insurance to Cover the Cost of Your Unit:

If you have hair loss due to medical reasons, you may be eligible for full medical coverage to purchase your full lace wig, or reimbursement by your health insurance company thereafter. You must request a prescription from your physician. The prescription MUST refer to your full lace wig as a "full cranial prosthesis". Most medical insurance policies will cover between 80-100% of the cost for a "full cranial prosthesis". However, if you request coverage for a wig, your claim will more than likely be denied. In addition to your prescription from your physician, you may also request a letter explaining hair loss and its effects, and have him state that it is not simply for cosmetic reasons, but for emotional well being as well.

Your hair prosthesis may also be a tax deductible medical expense (check with your tax professional).

Steps to Follow:

  1. In Comments section of your order, please indicate that you need the invoice to indicate the purchase of “Full Cranial Prosthesis”.

  2. Check the Coverage on your insurance policy to see if it covers cranial prosthesis. Should be found under durable medical equipment (DME)

  3. Request your Physician to write a prescription for a "full cranial prosthesis".

  4. Complete any other insurance forms and be sure they are signed by your Physician.

  5. Ask your Physician to also write a letter explaining hair loss and its effects and that it is not simply for cosmetic reasons but for emotional well being as well.

  6. Keep copies of all of your documentation and invoices for tax exempt purposes.

  7. Apply for a Grant or Voucher to Cover your Full Cranial Prosthesis (full lace wigs).

American Cancer Society:

American Cancer Society has a program available to those who qualify to assist you in purchasing a wig. If your insurance does not cover the full cost of your wig or only covers partial cost of your wig, you may quality for an allotment through the American Cancer Society. The American Cancer Society will issue you a voucher up to $75 to help cover the cost of your wig. You must meet certain financial guidelines. Also, you MUST apply for this voucher BEFORE you purchase your lace wig. It will not be awarded for pre-made purchases.
