Are you undergoing Alopecia or Cancer related therapy?

Did you know that you may be eligible for reimbursement of your "Cranial Prosthesis" through your health insurance? 

A cranial hair prosthesis is a hair system designed specifically for those suffering from hair loss due to medical conditions or treatments, such as alopecia areata, alopecia totalis, trichotillomania, or chemotherapy. Unlike an off-the-shelf wig, each prosthesis is custom made. When a cranial prosthesis is needed due to medical-related hair loss, most insurance companies will cover from 80% to 100% of a cranial prosthesis.

Each hair replacement unit produced by Ellexensions is handmade exclusively for our customers; one at a time. We strive to provide the most natural, comfortable and stunning hair solutions imaginable by offering medical grade wigs for those who have lost their hair due to a medical condition or as a result of medical treatment. 

How Do I Submit My Claim?
  • First. Make sure that your insurance covers reimbursement for Prescribed Cranial Prosthetics and will accept billing from providers that are not within their network. 

  • Most insurance policies cover “Prescribed Cranial Prosthesis” but DO NOT cover wigs. 

  • Insurance companies cover the cost under procedure codes S8095 and A9282

  • Get a letter and/or prescription from a licensed Oncologist or Dermatologist.

  • Make sure that the letter or prescription is for “Prescribed Cranial Prosthesis.” If your prescription is written using the term "wig" then your claim will most likely be refused.

  • Ellextensions will provide you with a receipt for your “Prescribed Cranial Prosthesis” showing proof of purchase.

  • Have the physician sign off on the insurance claim form and submit them together
