How To Get Grants For Full Cranial Prosthesis Due To Alopecia Areata

(For more information please contact our office at 1-800-975-6950)

Women who have been suffering from alopecia areata can counter the consistent hair loss, balding patches and receding hairline by a full cranial prosthesis. Alopecia areata is a condition where you experience consistent and worsening hair loss over a long period of time. You could have such a condition owing to the immune system mistakenly attacking the hair follicles or it may be an adverse effect of cancer, chemotherapy, trichotillomania and alopecia among other medical problems.

Grants from Organizations

The National Alopecia Areata Foundation has a program, named as the Ascot Fund. This program offers grants or financial assistance to women who intend to purchase full cranial prosthesis or full lace wigs. However, not everyone would be qualified under the statutes of the Ascot Fund. You can contact the National Alopecia Areata Foundation to find out if you are eligible.

The American Cancer Society also provides assistance through Wig Banks spread across the country and you may inquire about the assistive services that the organization and the banks can offer you. You can contact the American Cancer Society and find out the closest wig bank from your place of residence.

Insurance Coverage for Full Cranial Prosthesis

Many insurance companies cover the expense of full cranial prosthesis if women are opting for it due to alopecia areata. Some insurance companies may offer partial coverage while some may offer full coverage that will pay for the entire full lace wig.

However, it has to be borne in mind that when such wigs or solutions have to be covered by insurances, the term used for full lace wig has to be full cranial prosthesis. A full lace wig may be for cosmetic purposes alone but when it is referred to as full cranial prosthesis then it becomes a medical solution for alopecia areata. Thus, whether you are making claims or getting a medical expert to recommend the full lace wig to you, the term used should be full cranial prosthesis, in the prescription, in the application for coverage or in the claim and on every document.

The cost of full cranial prosthesis is covered by many medical insurance companies. You can call up your insurance provider and find out if such coverage is applicable or you can read the terms of your insurance policy. You must also note that the cost of full cranial prosthesis can be a tax deductible expense.
