Health Insurance Coverage for Hearing Aids

One of the most common questions heard in our hearing care clinic is “Does my insurance cover hearing aids?”

Because each health insurance provider has different coverage packages and varying levels of benefits, there’s no easy answer to this question without an extensive review of your insurance policy, which can be time consuming, frustrating, and confusing.

In spite of the fact that they can help enhance your quality of life through better hearing, restored relationships, decreased risk of balance-related falls, and improved cognitive function, deciding to treat your hearing loss with hearing aids is a big decision. Knowing if your hearing aids are covered by insurance helps make your decision easier.

South Sound Audiology wants to ensure that everyone who might benefit from hearing aids has access to them, so our team of professionals includes an insurance specialist who is able to answer your questions about insurance, check your coverage for you, and make sure you get all the financial assistance your policy provides.
