Cost of Hearing Aids
Are hearing aids expensive?
They are not as expensive as they used to be, but they are not inexpensive. Altough we offer basic models that are affordable and payment starts at $50/month. Some insurance plans cover basic models (dictated by them). Medicare unfortunately does not cover anything.
We notice many of our patients need help paying for their hearing aids and we observed that under the traditional hearing aid fit model, where we used to charge for a 3 year service pack, those patients were overpaying for services they did not need or use. We are now proud to be fully unbundled. This makes hearing aids much more affordable than they use to be. 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. We pride ourselves for pricing transparency in anything we do, and you only pay for services that you actually use.
