This Hair Trust Pilot from the Hair Transporters Association of America received a $50.000 cash payment from a hair transplant pilot program.

The pilot is the first of its kind in the United States and the first hair transplant in the state of California.
The patient received about $8,000 in cash from the pilot, and the remaining $8.5 million was earmarked for treatment of the other patients, the release stated.

Hair transplant surgery is the only hair transplant procedure that can be performed in-hospital, and typically costs up to $12,000 per patient.
