Many insurance companies include hearing aid benefits. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Florida covers individuals through a variety of programs. Those participating in the Federal Employee program (FEP) have a $2500 total benefit every 3 calendar years (Jan 1 – Dec. 31). Impaired hearing can affect the quality of life. Hearing and understanding is vital to daily living activities. If you suspect you have hearing loss we can help to verify it and offer solutions.
Determining your hearing aid benefits and what procedures to follow can be difficult. Gardner Audiology will confirm benefits prior to hearing aid fitting. We can provide this information over the phone and before your appointment. We understand your time is valuable.
Things to consider:
Some plans may require a medical clearance by a medical doctor prior to fitting. This is to rule out any medically treatable cause for the hearing loss. In some cases hearing loss can be corrected through medication or surgery. In addition some conditions suggest against fitting until they are medically addressed, such as a chronic draining ear.
Our staff will be happy to assist you to determine and verify your hearing aid benefits.
