Does Your Health Insurance Cover Hearing Aids?

Dr. Melissa Segev  Au.D., explaining hearing insurance benefits

There are many different insurance plans, riders, coverages, and benefit levels available among health insurance policies. It can be confusing and difficulty to determine what type of coverage you have.

That is especially true when it comes to determining whether hearing aids are covered by your insurance policy. “Does my insurance cover my hearing aids?” is one of the most common questions we answer almost every day.

There are no easy answers to this question, and finding the correct information can be extremely time-consuming and frustrating. To avoid this, Audiology Associates Inc. has insurance specialists on their team that can help any patient navigate the hearing aid process.

9 Questions You Need to Answer about Hearing Aid Coverage

  • Does my health insurance plan include benefits for hearing aids?
  • If there are benefits, what are they and how much can I expect to receive?
  • Do I have to pay certain deductible or out-of-pocket amounts before benefits kick in, and how much are they?
  • How often will my health insurance plan pay towards the cost of new hearing aids, or how often do those benefits renew?
  • Can I go to the practice or audiologist of my choosing, or am I restricted to certain network practices or providers?
  • Will my preferred audiologist or practice accept my insurance?
  • Does my policy cover diagnostic hearing evaluations, or any other services related to hearing healthcare included with hearing aids?
  • Will I have to get a referral from my primary care physician before seeing an audiologist in order to be covered?
  • Am I restricted to purchasing a generic brand/type of hearing aid or can I choose the one I like best?
