Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Will insurance pay for my hearing services?
A. Listen Hear submits payment for hearing tests, special diagnostic testing and any hearing aid coverage to your insurance provider. If payment is not granted, there is a fee for services provided. By law, we are required to bill all patients equally for services rendered.
Unfortunately not all insurances will cover the cost of hearing aids. However, with every hearing aid purchase, our audiology services and warranties are included for a minimum of one to three years.
Q. I am not ready for new hearing aids, can Listen Hear service my hearing aids purchased elsewhere?
A. Of course! Sometimes hearing aids may just need to be adjusted or recalibrated. New technology is not always the answer right now. Call us today to inquire more about our cost of services.
Q. Will Medicare cover hearing aids?
A. No, however we offer a variety of payment and service plans at your request.
Q. Can I try hearing aids before purchasing them?
A. Yes! At Listen Hear, the experience of better hearing is very important to us. To help you make your decision, we offer free in-office demonstrations and risk-free hearing aid trials. After each purchase you will have a minimum of 45 days to finalize your purchase.
Q. Which style and type hearing aid is best for me?
A. The type and style of hearing aid will depend most on the severity of your hearing loss, communication needs and manual dexterity. Everyone is different so our audiologist will make the proper recommendation based on the audiological results and the hearing difficulties that need to be addressed for each individual patient. Sound quality and realistic successful outcomes are our top priority.
Q. What is the difference between the hearing aids you offer and over-the-counter or hearing aids purchased online?
A. It is strongly recommended to purchase online hearing aids or OTCs with caution. When visiting our facility, we partner with 5 major hearing aid manufacturers. We will properly diagnosis and fit your specific hearing loss and communication needs. From a referral for medical treatment to the more accurate prognosis and recommendation of hearing aids, each fitting will include the service, instruction and follow up care you will need to have a successful outcome with your hearing aids.
Q. How much do hearing aids cost?
A. A pair of our hearing aids range between $2,500 to $7,000 dollars. If you have a hearing loss in both ears, it is recommended to be fit binaurally. The cost of the hearing aid will vary depending on the length of service and level of technology you choose. Premium hearing aids will improve overall sound quality and clarity while automatically filtering out unwanted background noise. As level of technology decreases, the automatic features, speech clarity and fine tuning adjustments become more limited. Following a hearing test, our audiologist will give you a hearing aid assessment to accurately determine the level of technology that best fits you.
