Gardner audiologists in South Pasadena and St. Petersburg, Florida are providers for Cigna Health Insurance . While most CIGNA plans cover diagnostic hearing evaluations when ordered by a physician, many plans do not offer hearing aid benefits. It is essential that Gardner staff verify your benefits before service is provided.
Several years ago Cigna Health Insurance began contracting with a third party company to manage their hearing aid benefits. Gardner Audiology is also a provider with that company. If someone were to attempt to file directly to Cigna Health Insurance for the hearing aid benefit, the claim would be denied.
It is in your best interest to work with an audiologist familiar with the insurance requirements in order to assure your claim will be handled properly. Knowing your benefits, including coverage, deductible, copayment, and proper steps in filing the claim allow you to maximize your benefit.
Insurance can be intimidating to try to navigate. Call Gardner Audiology at 1-800-277-1182 and let us help you determine if you have hearing aid benefits.
