Does Medicare Cover Hearing Aids?

Medicare “Open Enrollment” is happening now through December 15th! During this time, Medicare enrollees can make changes to their existing coverage. Some common changes are: 

  • Changing from traditional Medicare to a Medicare Advantage plan or “Medicare Plan C” 
  • Switching Medicare Advantage plan carriers (like changing from Aetna to United Healthcare) 
  • Adding a “part D” plan for prescription coverage, or switching coverage 

While traditional Medicare doesn’t have coverage for hearing aids, many “Medicare Advantage” plans do! Many seniors are opting for Medicare Advantage plans due to their expanded coverage for vision, dental, prescriptions, and hearing within one convenient plan.  

At Gardner Audiology, our insurance team is knowledgeable about each Medicare Advantage plan’s benefits for hearing aids, and we’re in-network with all of them! Some plans cover hearing aids in full, while others offer deep discounts or home delivery options. 

When choosing your Medicare plan, be sure to ask about hearing aid coverage! If you have questions about your hearing aid benefits, call the Gardner Audiology insurance team in Tampa Bay at 800-277-1182, or email us:
