Kids Should Be Covered: Wig Bills
Maggie's Wigs 4 Kids of Michigan is working with state legislators to encourage insurance companies to cover the cost of wigs for children like any other prosthetic. There are 6 other states that see this as a need and Michigan is not one of them. This is more than hair; it's about a child's well-being emotionally, socially and psychologically.
In 2023, we will be going back to Lansing to reintroduce our wig bills again. A special thanks to Robert Kennedy of Capitol Affairs who is assisting us and working with Senator Hertel. In the meantime, Robert helped us secure an enhancement grant to defray some of the costs of providing wigs to the children of Michigan.
