Insurance claims for vitiligo

The medication and treatments necessary to a vitiligo patient are long term and costly. Depending on the insurance company you are with, they may cover the price of medication, home treatment unit, doctor appointment fees, UV sessions in the doctor’s office or none of the above. The most helpful type of reimbursement is the reimbursement for the UV unit - a hand-held UVB unit may suffice for a patient with few affected areas but if your spots are widespread a panel type unit is necessary, with prices starting around 1000$.
