Gardner Audiology, located in Clearwater, FL, is an authorized provider for United Healthcare (UHC) insurance plans. Patients with UHC insurance may have a plan that includes hearing aid benefits. While understanding your insurance can be confusing, our knowledgeable staff can help you understand your insurance coverage and verify your benefits.
United Healthcare plans can vary with some offering full coverage for premium level hearing aids, while others may provide a fixed amount to be used towards a hearing aid purchase. Gardner Audiology will verify benefits ahead of your appointment so we can explain exactly what is offered by your insurance, as well as discuss any out of pocket expenses. Additionally, we will let you know if your particular UHC plan is one that provides mail-order hearing aids as the benefit option. These hearing aids come in a basic technology level and are usually programmed remotely before being mailed to your home. If there is a participating provider in your area, you may also be able to inquire about having them programmed in person. Because it is so important that hearing technology specifically fit to your hearing loss, this mail order system may not be the best option for all patients. At Gardner Audiology, we can further discuss this practice model and assist in deciding what options will work best for your needs.
Insurance can be confusing, but if you have a United Healthcare plan, our Clearwater Gardner Audiology office is here to answer any of your insurance questions. Our number one goal is to help you hear and communicate while providing the best hearing healthcare possible. Contact our team to determine your UHC insurance benefits at 1-888-277-1182.
