Why is it that some insurance companies will cover the cost of wigs for hair loss due to chemotherapy but not other causes? I don't mean to sound cold, but wigs don't increase survival rates and are not medically necessary. The hair will grow back once the chemo is stopped in most cases. Our hair is NEVER coming back, and for some of us, wigs are a huge expense. Yes, cancer is worse than losing hair, but suffering from permanent hair loss doesn't exempt us from ever getting cancer or any other disease, for that matter, so there's no tradeoff. I'll never be able to afford top-of-the-line hair.
