Coping with Hair Loss During Treatment

A wig could be covered by your insurance

Concerned that a wig is too expensive? They can be; however, many people do not realize that they are actually often covered by insurance as long as your oncologist writes a prescription for a "full cranial prosthesis." If your insurance will not cover the cost of a wig, there are many organizations like the American Cancer Society or CancerCare that are dedicated to offering wigs for free to those who cannot afford them. However, if you are looking to shop around for yourself, most treatment centers offer lists of the best local wig boutiques.
