Hearing Aid Cost
What do Hearing Aids Cost?
After researching the cost of hearing aids and seeing the price tag, it can be a little disheartening, discouraging, or even downright frustrating. For many people, hearing aids are one of the largest single-purchase items that they will make in their lifetime.
Hearing aids are an important investment into not just a patient’s hearing, but also for their overall health. These are devices are worn all day, every day, seven days a week. When purchasing hearing aids, it’s essential to be sure the money and time spent is well worth it.
To give an actual hearing aid price is tricky without evaluating a patient. To choose the right device for you, it’s necessary to learn more about your hearing loss situation, lifestyle, and individual needs. We would be happy to speak with you and help you find hearing aids that fit your lifestyle and budget!
Why are Hearing Aids So Expensive?
It takes time, money, research, testing, and training hearing aid specialists to properly test, fit, adjust and fix each individual manufacturer’s specific hearing aid requirements. This is in addition to understanding each and every patient’s activity levels, their hearing needs, their expectations for the hearing aids themselves, and implementing the appropriate hearing technology for the greatest benefits to the patient.
While the total amount is high, the ongoing usage price is reasonable. Monthly, it is about what you would pay to get satellite or cable television. Daily, it’s less than the cost of a mocha at your favorite coffee shop. When you consider the communication, relationship, and health benefits you get from wearing hearing aids, most people agree that it is well worth it.
Does Insurance Cover Hearing Aids?
For over 30 years people have come to me and ask why don’t insurance companies cover hearing aids. A few years back they started covering hearing aids. Unfortunately, these hearing aids were of very low quality and basic amplifiers and created more problems than actually helping.
However, today there are more and more insurance companies covering brand-name hearing aids. The issue is not all insurances are the same. Some are simply a discount program and after paying the insurance company their part and paying for the service to the provider to take care of them, you have paid full price for hearing aids. Then there are some programs that will pay for top brand name hearing aids with 0-20% deductible. and then the are some that pay $2000 per ear total of $4000 for brand-name hearing aids.
What we found is that agents just see that there is hearing aid coverage. They do not know about hearing aids and how they work or the costs.
We don’t know the ins and outs of the insurance industry, but together we have been able to get people the proper coverage in order to cover the cost of their hearing aids and this is why we are successful in getting 80% of our clients no out of pocket help and no increase in premium.
