Does insurance cover hearing aids?

Each insurance company offers different packages of hearing aid coverage. Some plans may cover a set of hearing aids completely, while other plans may contribute only a portion of the total cost. We are participating providers of many different insurance plans and we can help you determine what kind of coverage you may have.

How much do hearing aids cost?

The level of technology determines the cost of the hearing instruments, not the size or shape.
