Advocating for Medicare coverage of wigs as durable medical equipment for individuals with alopecia can have a profound impact on their lives. H.R. 4034 and S. 1922 are legislative bills aimed at reclassifying wigs as eligible for Medicare coverage, addressing the financial barrier faced by many. Access to wigs improves quality of life, enhances mental health, promotes equality, and empowers individuals with alopecia. By taking simple steps such as filling out a letter and emailing it to the designated contact, we can support these bills and help make a positive change for the alopecia community.
