Hearing aid benefits are becoming more and more common among Medicare Advantage insurance plans. Unfortunately, those benefits are not widely available among other insurance plans. Of course, there are always exceptions to the “norm”; for instance, the Blue Cross Blue Shield Federal Employee Program (BCBS FEP)! If you have a BCBS FEP insurance plan, you have access to up to $2500 towards hearing aids. If you are looking for a local provider, Gardner Audiology in New Port Richey, FL is an in-network provider with BCBS FEP plans, and is currently accepting new patients!
This benefit does not have a restriction as to what manufacturer, technology level, or style it can be used towards – which is a major advantage for patients since hearing aids are not a “one-size-fits-all” solution! Depending on what your lifestyle is like, or what your priorities are as far as hearing aid technology goes, our providers at Gardner Audiology in New Port Richey, FL can give recommendations for devices that will give you the benefit you need! Additionally, our providers are qualified to program hearing aids from all of the major manufacturers, and have supplies in-office to help with certain troubleshooting issues that may come up.
Hearing aids have always been very useful pieces of technology for patients who suffer from hearing loss. Just as any other product has advanced in technology over the years, so have hearing aids! For one, patients no longer need to worry about changing pesky batteries as many hearing aids are now available in rechargeable! What is also very handy, is that most hearing aids come standard with Bluetooth capabilities! Depending on the make and model of your hearing aid and cell phone, you can download a remote app to control volume and even some sound qualities! Some models even allow for streaming audio from phone calls and music!
