Patient Advocacy: Hair to Stay

Scalp cooling is a process that minimizes chemotherapy-induced hair loss by continuous application of precisely cooled caps (either individual caps or using an automated scalp-cooling machine) to the scalp beginning just prior to each chemotherapy infusion and continuing during and immediately following the infusion. Currently, most insurance companies do not cover the costs of scalp cooling.

If you are in chemotherapy and are currently using, or are preparing to use a scalp cooling system, you may qualify for a grant of up to $1,000 to offset the cost. You will be reimbursed for a portion of the actual cost of each of your treatment charges.
