Things we will need from you to process your claim:
1. If you are located in Houston, Texas, please schedule your Complimentary Consultation by clicking "Book Now." If you are outside of Houston, Texas, please schedule your Complimentary Phone Consultation by clicking "Book Now." Please have your Insurance Card ready!
2. Many health insurance companies will reimburse you anywhere between 80%-100% for the cost of your Cranial "Hair" Prosthesis. For women diagnosed with a condition that has caused Alopecia (hair loss), your doctor will need to write you a prescription for a "Cranial Prosthesis." If you currently do not have a doctor or dermatologist, Divine Hair Co. will assist you in finding a doctor to diagnose your type of hair loss. You do not need this prescription before your appointment with Divine Hair Co.
NOTE: Be sure that your doctor states your specific diagnosis. Alopecia alone is not a diagnosis. Make sure your doctor notes in his/her prescription your specific type of hair loss as well as any other diagnosis and codes for medical conditions, if any. For example, Alopecia Totalis, Alopecia Areata, Alopecia Universalis, etc.
3. To process your claim, we will need a letter from your doctor explaining the extent of hair loss and the mental/emotional distress that you have experienced due to your medical treatment. Your doctor may not use the term "wig." Please encourage your doctor to use "Cranial Prosthesis" in their letter and not "Wig." Your doctor will also need to explain why the Cranial Prosthesis is considered DME (Durable Medical Equipment). Divine Hair Co. will also work closely with your doctor, if needed. You do not need this letter before your appointment with Divine Hair Co.
4. We will also need a copy of your driver's license and insurance card front/back to submit with your claim. You will only provide this information when you have decided on the hair system that is best for you!
Additional Helpful Items to provide Divine Hair Co. and to ensure your claim is not denied:
Include a letter from your employer explaining the importance of having hair on the job or a letter from a close friend/relative/spouse.
Divine Hair Co. also provides a written letter explaining why our Cranial Prosthesis is needed and the benefits of a Cranial Prosthesis versus any wig from the hair store.
Take pictures of your hair WITHOUT your wig on and WITHOUT make-up on to show that the unit is not for cosmetic purposes.
Most importantly, hand write a letter stating the emotional toll that your condition has taken on your life (i.e. Self-Confidence, Grief/Depression, Anxiety, Quality of Life/Activities of Daily Living, Relationships). Divine Hair Co. does have a Licensed Master of Social Worker on staff who can assist you in writing this letter. In this letter, you will need to explain the benefits of purchasing this type of prosthesis versus a wig (it is made to order, custom, more security, more natural, fit for your ethnicity, and that it has the ability to last for several years-more cost effective).
