Does insurance cover rogaine?

Topical minoxidil such as rogaine is not covered by insurance.

However, in some instances, insurance may cover the use of oral minoxidil since it is also used as an oral antihypertensive drug/medicine.

But since the topical version is preferred for hair regrowth and growing out facial hair, it is highly unlikely that your insurance will cover your minoxidil use for aesthetic purposes. Luckily, the cost of minoxidil is not that high.
