Finding in-network providers can be tricky sometimes! If you are in need of a hearing test, or hearing aids, and are a Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) member, Gardner Audiology in Tampa Bay, FL is your one-stop-shop! Not only are our Doctors of Audiology in-network for hearing evaluations, but they are also able to work with any hearing aid benefit you may have!
Oftentimes, for a comprehensive hearing evaluation – which is routine testing that can provide diagnostic information about your specific hearing loss – BCBS insurance plans cover the cost of the testing, with a copayment required on the member’s part. This testing provides a window into what your hearing loss looks like, and allows the doctor to provide you with the recommended next-steps for treatment or management.
Speaking of next-steps for treatment of hearing loss… Some BCBS insurance plans include hearing aid benefits! Regardless of whether you have a funded benefit or discounted pricing, your provider can guide you through the process of purchasing hearing aids. Our Doctors of Audiology are trained to work with products from all of the major hearing aid manufacturers, and are knowledgeable about programming the hearing aids to each individual’s hearing loss.
