Help to get insurance companies to pay for Human Hair Cranial Prosthesis!

This petition had 292 supporters

My name is Jody Barker. I suffer from Alopecia Totalis from the age of two. My daughter, also, suffers from Alopecia.  My daughter and I wear wigs everyday as a way to deal with our hair loss. Alopecia can cause emotional stress, depression, anxiety disorder, etc. Currently, there is no cure! 

A day for me is putting on makeup to hide the fact of no brows or lashes, taping my head to keep the hair piece on, hoping nobody will notice! I suffer from anxiety, due to this disease. My insurance company will not pay for a quality cranial prosthetic! They will pay for every prosthetic, except this! 

It is unfair to those, who clearly need a cranial prosthetic! Not a synthetic wig, they do not last long and are uncomfortable... The cranial piece of human hair is made for those who suffer from hair loss.. I am hoping that I can get a petition passed for the insurance company to pay 90% of costs! A good Cranial Prosthesis cost $2000!!!  As a mother, I want my daughter to be able to afford a great Cranial Prosthesis!' Please, help me make a change!!!!!!!
