One of the most popular questions asked in the US is "does Medicare cover hearing aids?"
In this blog post, we explain some of the finer details of hearing aid insurance, and offer cost-effective tips.
If you are covered by Part A or B of Medicare, then, unfortunately, the answer is no.
These plans do not cover digital hearing aids. If you do experience an issue with your device, you may have to check with the manufacturer regarding a warranty or how to fix the problem. Alternatively, there is a number of solutions in the market should you need to repair a device or require replacement parts to keep your hearing aid working at its best.
For the most up to date information, visit Medicare.
All may not be lost…
If you have a medical condition that requires treatment which can be diagnosed with a diagnostic hearing exam, then Part B could be of assistance. Medicare's Part B (medical insurance) may cover up to 80% of the allowable charges for these tests.
We recommend that you always check with the insurer for the most accurate information.
Depending on the service required, other options may offer you the assistance you need.
Your device itself may not be the issue. Domes, wax guards, tubes or other components can also become faulty. At Hearing Direct, you find a wide range of hearing aid accessories to help fix, repair, or improve your device.
The question to ask may not be 'does Medicare cover hearing aids?' but more like: which options are available?
Just as you would protect your car, home, and life, there are options when it comes down to hearing aids insurance.
Some hearing aid insurers are listed below:
Each company is able to offer different plans, benefits, and coverage, so it is recommended that you review policies to find the correct cover you need. Depending on the state you live in, plans may differ from state to state or alternative insurance plans may exist.
Hearing aids can be very expensive. The average price of a privately purchased hearing aid is around $1,500, so quite rightly, they are a valuable investment.
On top of buying a hearing device, other costs factor in, raising the initial price. This includes:
The average life of a hearing aid is around five years. Depending on the stage of your life at which you require a hearing device, this may become a long-term investment with a long-term price tag. This is why we at hearingdirect.com are dedicated to providing affordable hearing aids.
