As recently as 3-4 years ago, insurance coverage for adult hearing aids finally began to appear. Now, coverage is becoming very widely available. You may have hearing aid coverage and not even know it.
However, you can’t get your insurance benefits UNLESS you purchase them through an Audiologist in their network. The insurance companies offering these benefits almost always have a third-party company that deals exclusively with their hearing aid benefit offering.
So, there are a couple of ‘hoops’ you’ll need to jump through – but they’re easy and we’ll be there to help and guide you all the way.
First, though, please understand this: just because you’ve got insurance, doesn’t mean that we’ll be pushing you to buy hearing aids. If you know anyone who’s dealt with our practice, you’ll learn that we’re VERY low key and we don’t try to sell you something you don’t need. We regularly (and happily) will tell patients that they don’t need hearing aids now and encourage them to come back and see us in a couple of years.
Some Audiologists claim to “participate” with your insurance carrier. While this might help if they’re providing medical-type services, it doesn’t mean that you can get insurance benefits for hearing aids from them. They must be “in network” with the insurance company’s hearing benefits administrator. WE ARE!
