If you hold a medical card there are allowances available from the HSE towards a wig or hairpiece for hair loss due to medical reasons. It will require a letter from your oncology nurse or general practitioner. We will submit the letter on your behalf with the required paperwork & the HSE will pay us so you don't have to. Please be aware that allowance amounts differ in each region.


Health insurance companies also provide assistance toward a wig if you are receiving chemotherapy & we will be happy to help you with your application. They do not currently cover wigs/hairpieces for alopecia.

Minister Humphreys speaking to the Press on 25/5/22
The Minister for Social Protection Heather Humphreys has announced a new grant of up to €500 towards the cost of a hairpiece, wig or hair replacement for people who suffer hair loss due to illness.
The new grant is expected to support approximately 2,000 women or men during the first year of its introduction.
The grant will fall under the Department of Social Protection’s Treatment Benefit Scheme and will cover hair loss resulting from cancer and forms of alopecia.
In making the announcement, Minister Humphreys said:
“This new grant is being introduced in recognition of both the physical and psychological impact that sudden hair loss can have on someone’s life.
“This initiative, provided for in Budget 2022, is about supporting people who suffer from forms of alopecia or cancer.
“The grant of up to €500 will assist in the purchase of a wig or hairpiece, for people who suffer the trauma of hair loss.
“I really hope this new grant will help in some small way in improving the quality of life of people who need it. It is designed to support women or men who lose something that so many of us, on a daily basis, take for granted.”
