It’s quite complex to know where and how to get your insurance to refund you electrolysis hair removal treatment. The general rule on when you get a refund seems to be quite vague. It largely depends from country to country and from individual to individual. However, we recommend you always request a refund. Even if it seems unlikely you will receive anything, do not hesitate to request a refund anyway.
Why? The more you let your voices be heard, the more the insurances will have to start to listen. These 7 ways to convince your insurance to pay back your electrolysis session at 2pass Clinic may be helpful in writing your request.

Make sure to inform yourself to get the most suitable kind of insurance and/or additional coverage.
