Free Phonak Hearing Aid Fittings in Exhange for your Opinion

Not everyone has an insurance benefit to help cover the cost of hearing aids and I have had patients come in with price quotes as high as $9,500 for a pair of top-of-the-line hearing aids from another business in the Tampa Bay area! If you do have an insurance benefit for hearing aids through a Medicare Advantage plan, then we must use the third-party management company your insurance contracts with to provide that benefit. We participate with most of these companies and can explain the process.

If you do not have a benefit for hearing aids, we have you covered! Gardner Audiology has a field study of the newest technology Phonak Lumity receiver in the canal (RIC) hearing aids ongoing. If you have hearing loss and qualify to participate in the study, you have the option to wear the new hearing aids out in the real world at no cost. Our Audiology doctors will perform a free candidate screening and if you have hearing loss that qualifies you for the study, they will review your options and try to find the technology level that best fits your lifestyle and budget.

You will be fitted with those hearing aids on a trial basis to wear out in the environment that you need help in. After wearing them you will return to our office and answer questions regarding if you have a cell phone, how do you use it? Did you connect the hearing aids to your phone, and if so, did you use your phone to adjust the hearing aids? How much improvement in hearing did you see overall? How much improvement when you were with more than one person? How much improvement did you see with TV volume and clarity? The data we gather is presented to the manufacturer to give them real world feedback to help with future technology. You then have the option to return the hearing aids or purchase them at discounted pricing. The best value in the Phonak study is the Lumity 90 RIC at $3,800 for the pair. This is the top-of-the-line newest Phonak hearing aid with the best noise management to help you hear better in noisy settings. There are also lower levels of technology/lower cost options available, as well.

If you are curious about the newest hearing aid technology, call Gardner Audiology at 1-800-277-1182. Request a free candidate screening for the 2024 field study at one of their 10 locations in Tampa Bay.
