I finished 5 months of cold capping rental for a total of $1,600. My doctor placed an order for it but my insurer United Healthcare denied my claim—even though they would have covered wig costs if I lost my hair.Has anyone had any luck getting cold capping equipment rental covered by their insurer? Any info might help with my appeal. Many thanks!

Hi Dono!

We can't really answer your question, but while you wait for responses here, you may want to post also in the Cold Caps Users Past and Present, to Save Hair thread.

Hope this helps. Good luck!
