Dr. Angela Schenk is a Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) hearing and hearing aid provider in Inverness, Florida

Gardner audiologist Dr. Angela Schenk in Inverness is a provider for Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) insurance plans. Most BCBS plans cover diagnostic hearing evaluations when ordered by a physician. Whether or not your plan has hearing aids benefits is another story. Contacting BCBS and verifying benefits is the only way to know for certain.

Insurance companies rarely cover the cost of hearing aids. Often hearing aid benefits are part of a retirement plan plan that is administered through an insurance company. One example is FEP – Federal Employee Plan, also referred to as Government-wide Service Benefit Plan. FEP covers retired government workers through BCBS and provides a $2500 benefit toward the purchase of hearing aids every three calendar years. While this is only one example, there are many others.

The doctors of audiology at all Gardner Audiology offices are providers for BCBS. Our office staff is knowledgeable about the different insurance plans and is happy to handle verification of your benefits. Your insurance plan may have certain requirements that must be met, such as being medically cleared for hearing aids by a physician. Proper procedures must be followed and protocols must be met before an insurance company will process a claim. Gardner Audiology will provide guidance in compliance of the insurance requirements.

Don’t try navigating the insurance waters alone. Call Gardner Audiology at 1-800-277-1182 and let us help you determine if you have hearing aid benefits.
