Did you start a new health insurance plan this year? Are you wondering if you have any hearing aid benefits included? More and more insurance plans are offering hearing aid benefits, and Florida Blue Medicare is no different! Yes, you read that right! If you are enrolled in Florida Blue Medicare, then you have access discounted hearing aid prices, or even a funded benefit!
Following the recent trend, Florida Blue Medicare contracts out to a third-party company to be able to offer members hearing aid benefits. Specifically, Florida Blue Medicare uses Nations Hearing. This allows members access to a full consult appointment with an audiologist, where your hearing will be tested and any and all questions will be answered! The best part is, Nations Hearing will cover the cost of this appointment for you! Now, not all hearing healthcare providers work with Nations Hearing or Florida Blue Medicare. In Palm Harbor, FL, Gardner Audiology is an in-network preferred provider for Nations Hearing!
Just like other third-party companies, Nations Hearing offers hearing aids from all major manufacturers, in all styles and different technology levels. No matter your lifestyle of hearing healthcare needs, an option is available to you! Sometimes hearing aids require a custom ear piece, or are not available yet in rechargeable; if that is the case, Nations Hearing has got you covered! All earmolds and even a supply of batteries are often included with your hearing aid benefit! While Nations Hearing does include a service package, they will only cover a limited number of visits with your audiologist after being fit with your hearing aids. Keep in mind, that these hearing aids are offered at a very discounted rate, so after your covered visits are used, there will be a charge for visits. Typically, these charges do not exceed $30.
