However in Victoria if you suffer from hair loss due to Alopecia or another diagnosed hair loss problemyou are entitled to a rebate from the government to help cover the costs.
This is through the Department of Human Services Aids and Equipment Program. Download the Medicare Rebate Form
You can claim the cost of the hair piece and application under medical expenses when lodging your tax return. If you have extras cover with your private health insurance, with a letter from your doctor, you can also claim a rebate. Please refer to your insurance provider for more information.
