Most of the time, insurance policies and Medicare do not cover the cost of hearing aids, nor do they reimburse for them. Most Americans pay out of pocket for hearing aids.
If your insurance policy does cover hearing aids, we are happy to work with you. Contact your insurance company first and make sure that they would accept an out-of-network claim. Then, we can provide the appropriate paperwork that your insurance company would require to reimburse you for the purchase.
