Insurance and Financing

Insurance Information

Coverage for hearing testing and hearing aids varies between insurance companies. It is the exception, not the rule, that hearing aids are a covered benefit.

Medicare will cover hearing testing only, not hearing aids. A written referral on a physician Rx pad for “Evaluation of hearing loss” or “Audiological Evaluation” is needed for billing Medicare.

This list is not exhaustive and can change as companies are added and removed.    Feel free to contact us for any potential updates.

Often the hearing aid benefit is a negotiated discount on hearing aids purchased from certain providers.  We think you should know that their discount is on Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) and that their discounted price is often the same or higher than our regular list price (30-40% off of MSRP).

We are happy to verify benefits for any patients who supply us with their insurance information. We encourage them to see us for a consultation before making their decision on hearing healthcare providers.

For our out-of-network patients who have hearing aid benefits elsewhere, we will attempt to match the benefits and work out a reasonable discount for the patients to receive quality hearing instruments
