Hello, I am new to this forum. I used the cold caps to help with head pain and hair loss during my 3 chemotherapy treatments. I sent a claim to my insurance company, but it was rejected. Has anyone had success in getting reimbursement for the cold caps?They are expensive, and I believe if I resubmit my claim with a lot of evidence, I may be able to get reimbursed for at least some of the cost. Just wonder if anyone out there has had a similar experience or knows anything additional about this.

Thank you.

Hi ellenmcc, and welcome to Breastcancer.org. We appreciate you posting!

You may receive some good responses here, but you may also want to introduce yourself on the Cold Cap Users Past and Present to Save Hair thread, where many members share their experiences with this hair-saving technique, and likely can weigh in on getting insurance to cover the cost.

We hope this helps and we look forward to hearing more from you soon!
