Hearing Aid Benefits vs Discount Program
As the year winds down and December approaches, many people try to get into the office as they know their insurance deductible has been met or their insurance is changing next year and they want to take advantage of their benefits before they end.
Most insurance plans do not have any hearing aid benefits. Medicare has no coverage for hearing devices and if you have a Medicare Supplemental plan, that covers nothing as well, since it adheres to Medicare guidelines. Some secondary insurance plans have hearing aid benefits, as well as certain Medicare Advantage plans.
The trick is to know whether you actually have a benefit for hearing aids; that is, having money from insurance being paid toward hearing devices, or whether the insurance company has a contract with a third party to allow patients to get aids at a discounted price.
In either case, we are contracted to handle almost all insurance packages. In some instances, we can even offer a better deal.
