Does Health Insurance Cover Hearing Aids?

A common and quite logical question we have to answer on a daily basis is, “Are hearing aids covered by insurance?”

Hearing aids are a significant investment that can help transform your life by restoring the active, independent lifestyle you’re used to. However, figuring out how to pay for hearing aids is a challenge faced by individuals who might benefit from the better hearing boost they provide, especially those living on a fixed income.

To make matters worse, each insurance company has a variety of packages with or without added riders and specific rules and limitations related to their hearing aid insurance coverage as well as requirements related to deductibles and out-of-pocket expenses before your coverage kicks in.

Navigating through the fine print can be time consuming, frustrating, and discouraging. Unfortunately, not knowing how to afford hearing aids and not knowing how much hearing aids insurance coverage is available leads many individuals who qualify for hearing aids to put off getting the help they need.

Acadian Hearing Services wants to make sure that every individual who would benefit from hearing aids is able to get the help they need by helping sort through the various questions related to hearing aid insurance coverage as well as providing different ways to help with paying for hearing aids.
