Cost of Hearing Aids
Are hearing aids expensive?
They are not as expensive as they used to be, but they are not inexpensive. We offer basic and affordable models and payment starts at $50/month. We also offer the most advanced technology available. Some insurance plans cover basic models (dictated by them). Medicare unfortunately does not cover anything.
We noticed many of our patients need help paying for their hearing aids, and we observed that under the traditional hearing aid fit model, some patients were overpaying for services. Traditional Bundle pricing for hearing aids include a 3 year service pack and a few other "free" things (that you are in fact paying for upfront). We are proud to be fully unbundled. This makes hearing aids much more affordable than they use to be, and patient's will only pay for services they need. In addition, We offer "same as cash/no interest" payment plans and long term payment plans. We also work with government agencies and charities. Just let us know if you need help.
What does unbundle means?
What that means is that instead of you paying upfront for unnecessary visits, you pay as you go. You select what services you would like and what services are not necessary to you. This reduces the cost of hearing aids upfront, and makes hearing aids more affordable. With our pricing transparency in anything we do, and you only pay for services that you actually use.
So much much do hearing aids cost? Hearing Aid Technology Levels and Prices at our offices are on average:
Premium Technology $4000/pair - $4300/pair (rechargeable batteries)
Mid Level Technology $2600/pair - $3300/pair (rechargeable batteries)
Entry Level Technology $1000/pair - $2500/pair (rechargeable batteries)
Pricing will depend on exact model recommended to you at the time of your consultation.
