The Cost of Hyperhidrosis

Need help convincing your healthcare insurer that you deserve reimbursement for your hyperhidrosis treatments? The answers to the questions below may help. Consider using them in appeal letters to your health insurer (see our When You've Been Denied Coverage page).

Or, if you find yourself trying to decide whether you can afford the out-of-pocket expenses of hyperhidrosis treatments, use the questions below to figure out how excessive sweating currently affects your finances. Perhaps, by spending money on treatments, you may be able to save in other areas. Do you find yourself spending more money than your peers on -

      • Dry-cleaning and stain removal?
      • New shirts, dresses, shoes, socks, or other clothing?
      • Over-the-counter antiperspirants, deodorants, or powders?
      • Pads, "shields", towels, or materials to absorb perspiration?

Also consider your job and employment opportunities. Has excessive sweating affected your income or your potential for career advancement? Has it affected your personal or social life? These costs are hard to measure but you may find that the money spent on treating hyperhidrosis is worthwhile because of the improvement to your quality of life.
