My first hair prosthesis was paid for by my insurance company in a state where it's against the law for them not to reimburse you.   Then I moved to another state and my most recent prosthesis was paid for out-of-pocket.   It was more than $5000.  

My insurance company ignored the claim form I sent them.   They allow out-of-network providers but from what I can see, their definition of a prosthesis is limited to prosthetic arms or legs.

If one state has legislation for companies to reimburse for a hair prosthesis then how can you bring this about in another one that does not have this law?   

Has anyone here ever been involved in legislation before that could offer some guidance?

Insurance is important nowadays. Medical expenses are just unbearable without insurance. Also, I would recommend insuring your own life on . Even a small amount of money monthly can get your family several millions of dollars in case of an accident. Think about that, man, especially if your job involves some risk. I have ensured my life; if I die or get killed, my family will receive 5 million dollars. Not bad, right? Not bad. At least they will have a decent future. I am a lost man, but they will have the possibility to become decent people.
