One of the most common questions that our patients ask us is “How much do hearing aids cost?”
And since you’re reading this, you’ve probably been wondering this and doing your own research. Since many clinics keep this information close, you may not be finding the answers you’re looking for.
If you’re wondering why clinics keep this information close, we’re here to tell you that there are a few reasons.
But before we dive into those reasons, I’ll answer your question directly. Hearing care plans start as low as $2,500 and range up to $7,000 for more premium options.
And the reason that most clinics don’t openly share their prices is because the cost of your hearing care is very individual. It can vary greatly from person to person. Here’s why:
#1—Hearing Aid Cost Depends on Many Factors
How much you can expect to spend on hearing care packages depends on your needs and preferences.
The cost of hearing care depends on your level of hearing loss, your lifestyle, and your personal preferences.
This is why the majority of clinics require you to come into the clinic for a hearing test before they tell you a price. Your hearing health expert will want to get to know more about you and your lifestyle so they know which devices will work best for you.
Think of purchasing a hearing care package like purchasing a car—there are a ton of options out there. But a sports car likely isn’t right for a family of six.
#2—Hearing Care vs. Hearing Aids
Do you know the difference between hearing care and hearing aids? Many people don’t, and this is a major challenge that the hearing care industry faces. Many people believe that they can simply buy a hearing aid and start wearing it, and their hearing loss will be fixed.
But it’s not so simple. You see, the more important piece of the hearing loss puzzle is making sure that you’re partnering with the right team of hearing care professionals.
When you partner with a team of professionals, you’re paying for the expertise and time that they provide. You’re also likely paying for ongoing support and even maintenance and repairs of your hearing aids. You’re paying for a life-changing outcome.
This is the reason why many people believe hearing aids are expensive. If you just want to buy hearing aids, there are many options online to buy a pair and fit yourself. However, this is a lot like trying to do your own dental work if you’re not a dentist.
Proceed With Caution
When you browse the internet to scope out the prices of hearing aids, you will find prices. And you’ll likely find affordable options. But be warned that this isn’t a decision that you should base on the fact that you want to save money. If you’re not careful, you run the risk of your hearing loss worsening.
