Yes, it is possible. I actually got one through my insurance company. I called my insurance company to see if it was a possiblitly and then found out it was. I had to show proof I was on Cytoxan, (which got my rhuemy to write a note) which caused my hair to fall out and then went to a wig store picked out the one I wanted and payed out of pocket for it. I then was reimbursed the 300 dollars I spent for it.
If you can't get your insurance company to pay for it...go to tlcdirect.org. They have some fantastic wigs for very cheap. I actually got 2 of my wigs here and got more compliments on them than I didn on the expensive one. I actually even got one that matched my hair before it was gone and the same color. They have many styles long, short, curly, etc!
Hope this helps a bit!!! Sorry your doc is not helping you out here :(!!!
