Androgenic alopecia and traumatic alopecia are the most common causes of hair loss in women.

Androgenic alopecia
Hereditary hair thinning occurs in both men and women. 
It is the most common form of alopecia in women. 
It can begin as early as in the 20s. 
By age 40, 40% of these women have noticeable hair thinning due to this condition. 
By age 50, 50% of them have severe signs of hair loss. 
When this type of hair loss occurs, women usually do not develop true baldness in the patterns that occur in men, the areas affected are in the temples and the crown of the head, while the front hairline is usually preserved.

Scarring in the scalp area which causes hair loss. This form of hair loss frequently occurs in African-American women.

Traumatic alopecia is divided into three categories: traction, chemical and follicular alopecia.

Traction alopecia
Hair loss associated with persistent use of tight braids, hair rollers, weaves, twist, locks, or cornrows.

The first sign of traction alopecia is thinning above the ears and the forehead. This hair loss is often seen in young girls

Thinning usually begins at the crown and then spreads evenly throughout the head. It is an irreversible

Getting Your Health Insurance to Cover the Cost of Your Cranial Prosthesis Wig

If you lost your hair due to medical reasons such as chemotherapy, alopecia, or other medical conditions, when requesting a prescription from your physician, the full lace wig should then be referred to as a "full cranial prosthesis" which will then enable it to be covered under most medical insurance policies.
Most insurance companies will cover between 60-100% for your full cranial prosthesis. However, if you request coverage for a wig, chances are your claim will be denied.

So please, make sure you request a "full cranial prosthesis".

If you require a cranial prosthesis wig due to permanent hair loss or hair loss during chemotherapy or alopecia treatment, you may be eligible to receive full or partial coverage to purchase the full cranial prosthesis by your health insurance company. You must contact your insurance company directly to see what the procedure is to obtain full or partial coverage for the full cranial prosthesis.

Cancer patient's insurance may cover a full cranial prosthesis under the medical coding code: S8095 (For more information, please ask your health and your medical insurance provider.) 
Your hair prosthesis may also be a tax deductible medical expense.
