Medical Wigs

Look & feel like yourself again!

Andrew DiSimone, “the Wig Whisperer,” is the owner of a top-rated hair salon in NYC and designed his own brand of wigs. Every wig is made with premium hair, hand-tied using graft technology onto a thin, yet incredibly durable base for the most natural look and comfort. Our medical wigs can accommodate any level of activity and even allow your own hair to grow underneath. Voted New York Magazine’s “Best Medical Hair Loss Specialist,” our mission is to give patients the freedom to go about their daily lives looking and feeling like themselves again.

Get pre-approval for a wig

To get a medical wig, you should first get a prescription from your doctor. Make sure the Rx says “Medical Hair Prosthesis” or “Cranial Prosthesis”, not a wig. Also procedure codes A9282 and 99199 are the most commonly used. We will help you get pre-authorization from your insurance company. All we need is a picture of your desired hair and the prescription – sent via email so you never have to leave your home or hospital. In-hospital consultations are available in Manhattan.

Getting a wig

Once you get approved, you can purchse a premium from Andrew DiSimone Wigs at a reduced price. We volunteer weekly cutting and styling wigs at the American Cancer Society Hope Lodge in NYC and sponsor FreeWigsforKids.org. Through these organizations, we can help you get a free wig. We will also cut and style your free wig at no cost whatsoever.

Donate used wigs

When you are done with your wig, we ask that you donate it to FreeWigsforKids.org. The hair will be cleaned and reused for someone in need.
