A cranial hair prosthesis is a specially designed head covering that restores hair on the head and gives the wearer a natural-looking head of hair. The cranial prosthesis also aids in the regulation of body temperature and protects the scalp against outdoor elements. A cranial hair prosthesis is considered a necessary part of a person's health recovery. Therefore Health insurance companies will cover 80 to 100 % of the cost if you get a written doctor's prescription.
