HEARING INSURANCE


HEARING COVERAGE FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY

Hearing Insurance

When it comes to your hearing, it’s important to be clear about your insurance coverage. Hearing insurance provides a range of benefits that may not be available under your standard medical plan. As you age, hearing insurance can be an important consideration for you and your family’s quality of life.

What is hearing insurance?

Hearing insurance has been specifically designed to help cover expenses surrounding hearing tests and hearing aids. Coverage typically includes hearing checks, hearing aids and fittings, necessary repairs, and supplies like batteries. It functions much like general health insurance, with certain benefits available to you when you pay a monthly premium.

Why should I get hearing insurance?

Taking care of your hearing is vital for ongoing wellness, especially as you get older. Not only can hearing problems affect everyone, but the health of your hearing also impacts your overall health. For example, according to the Hearing Review, a hearing impairment can lead to a higher risk of falls and is correlated with increased risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Having hearing insurance makes it easier to get the care you need.

What is covered by hearing insurance?

Depending on the plan you choose, hearing insurance covers a wide range of medical costs, either partially or in full. For example, most plans will cover a portion of the cost of hearing checks, new hearing aids, fittings for hearing aids, and necessary supplies and repairs for hearing aids. Some plans may have a waiting period for new devices or existing hearing aid repairs, so it’s a good idea to enroll before you need a hearing device.
