Dr. Angela Schenk is the audiologist in the Inverness office of Gardner Audiology. She is a provider for Cigna Health Insurance. If your physician orders a diagnostic hearing evaluation, Cigna typically covers the test. Some Cigna Health Insurance plans include coverage for hearing aids. Many plans do not have hearing aid benefits. To determine if your plan offers hearing aid coverage, verification of benefits is essential. The only way to be certain is to contact Cigna directly.
Cigna Health Insurance began contracting with a third party company to manage their hearing aid benefits a short while ago. Gardner Audiology doctors are also providers with the third party. If someone files a claim 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 office that knows your insurance requirements in order to assure your claim will be handled properly. Knowing your benefits, including coverage, deductible, co-payment, and proper steps in filing the claim is an absolute necessity to maximize your benefit. The staff at Gardner Audiology knows the proper pathway to achieve this.
Insurance can be intimidating to try to navigate. We are here to help. Call Gardner Audiology at 1-800-277-1182 and let us help you determine if you have hearing aid benefits.
