Blue Cross Blue Shield of Florida covers individuals through a variety of programs. Those participating in the Federal Employee program (FEP) have a $2500 total benefit every 3 calendar years (Jan 1 – Dec. 31). Hearing loss is a major factor in the quality of life. Hearing and understanding conversations is very important to daily living activities. If you suspect you have hearing loss we can help to verify it and offer solutions.
Reviewing your policy to determine your benefits and what procedures to follow can be challenging. Gardner Audiology will confirm benefits prior to their appointment in order to spare patients the aggravation of finding out that hearing aids are not covered or covered to a lesser degree than expected. We may be able to provide this information over the phone and before your appointment
Some plans may require a medical clearance by a medical doctor prior to fitting. This is to rule out any medically treatable cause for the hearing loss. In addition, some conditions suggest against fitting until they are medically addressed, such as a chronic draining ear.
Our staff will be happy to assist you to determine and verify your hearing aid benefits.
