Participating wig providers will see a boost in rates


It’s a winning proposition for members and providers. We’ve increased the reimbursement rate for participating providers of wigs* (cranial prostheses) to $1,000. The change became effective as of October 1, 2018. 


We recognize that the cost of wigs varies based on several factors and want to ensure we’re reimbursing providers appropriately.   


Although initially excluded, providers in Texas and Washington are now eligible for the enhanced reimbursement.
