Health Plans help pay for wigs for cancer patients.
There are also other organizations that help with the purchase and lending of wigs.

  • Health plans provide financial assistance for purchasing wigs for oncology patients whose hair has fallen out as the result of their treatments.
  • In order to receive a reimbursement for the purchase of a wig, you must keep the receipt and present relevant medical documentation from the treating oncological facility.
  • The maximum reimbursement is updated periodically and varies between health plans and types of insurance:

Clalit Health Services

  • For regular insurance policy holders - Reimbursement of 33% of the actual cost, and no more than the plan's defined maximum payment. Eligibility once per year and a tax invoice/receipt in the patient's name must be presented.
  • For "Clalit Mushlam" policy holders - Reimbursement of up to 85% of the cost and no more than 1331 NIS. Eligibility once per year. The wig must be bought privately .
  • The patient must present medical approval, a form from the health plan, and a tax invoice/receipt in the patient's name.

Maccabi Health Services

  • For "Magen Kesef" policy holders - Reimbursement up to 33% of the cost and no more than 533 NIS once per year.
  • For "Magen Zahav" policy holders - Reimbursement of up to 83% of the cost up to a maximum of 1340 NIS once per year.

Leumit Health Plan

  • Reimbursement of 33% of the cost up to a maximum of 233 NIS.
  • For “Leumit Kesef” policy holders - Reimbursement of 80% of the cost and no more than 301 NIS once per year.
  • For “Leumit Zahav” policy holders - Reimbursement of 80% of the cost and no more than 1148 NIS once per year.

Meuhedet Health Plan

  • For "Adif" and "Si" policy holders - Reimbursement of 50% of the cost and no more than 1442 NIS.
  • Meuhedet works with a company that provides hair solutions. You may find wig samples included in the agreement and the patient's deductible on the website.
  • You need a payment voucher (hitchayvut) from the treating medical facility before claiming this benefit.
  • The patient must pay the deductible directly to the supplier. No reimbursement will be given beyond the sum of the payment voucher.
  • Patients who wish to purchase a wig from another supplier will be entitled to a reimbursement according to the terms of the additional health services (Shaban).

Please note

  • Some hospitals offer wig services, but you should check and compare prices with different suppliers, as with any purchase.
  • Hospital social workers can help with the process, especially for those having financial difficulties.
