Does Health Insurance Cover Hearing Aids?

Two common questions we have to answer almost daily are, “Does my insurance cover hearing aids?” and “Is there a hearing clinic near me that takes my insurance?”

Hearing aids are a significant investment with the capacity to help transform your hearing as well as restore the active and independent lifestyle you’re used to. Paying for hearing aids is often a significant challenge faced by individuals who might benefit from them.

What’s worse is understanding the variety of packages with or without added riders offered by insurance companies, as well as the specific rules and limitations related to their coverage, along with deductibles and out-of-pocket expenses before your coverage for hearing aids kicks in.

Many who would benefit from the use of hearing aids put off getting the help they need because navigating through the fine print can be time consuming, frustrating and discouraging. Our team at Alaska Hearing and Tinnitus Center wants to do all we can to make sure those who need hearing aids are able to get them, so we have an insurance specialist on our staff to answer questions about hearing aid insurance.

Dr. Emily was super helpful last year when my son was having trouble with his ears. She is friendly, obviously very educated (and excited!) about ears, and expresses much warmth and care toward her patients. She would be my first call if an ear issue ever came up again in my family!
