Step 1: Get Rx for Medical Wig

Ask your doctor to write you a prescription for a medical hair (or cranial) prosthesis. The prescription should describe the specific medical problem that resulted in your need for a medical hair prosthesis, such as chemotherapy, alopecia or head burn.

IMPORTANT: Make sure the Rx is for a medical hair (or cranial) prosthesis, NOT a wig.
