Wondering if your Ultimate Health Medicare Advantage plan offers hearing aid benefits? Well, if you are enrolled in plans such as Ultimate Elite or Ultimate Health Plan HMO, you do have hearing aid benefits! Ultimate Health Medicare Advantage plans contract their hearing aids benefits through a third-party company, as many insurance plans are doing now. In this case, these plans contract through Nations Hearing. Gardner Audiology in Citrus Park, Tampa, FL is an in-network preferred provider for Nations Hearing! Our insurance team and audiologists work with patients regularly to maximize their benefits through Nations Hearing.
Most often, these Medicare Advantage plans offer discounted pricing on hearing aids. Depending on the level of your plan, you may also have a funded benefit of up to $2000. Hearing aid options can sometimes include devices that are $0 out-of-pocket, but even if you do have to pay an amount out-of-pocket, it is always significantly less than typical hearing aid prices. Hearing aids from all major manufacturers, in all styles and all technology levels are offered through this benefit. There are hearing aids that are rechargeable and that can connect to your smartphone via Bluetooth! The charger is provided at no additional cost, and if your hearing aid uses standard batteries, Nations Hearing will provide a 3-year supply of batteries! Nations Hearing will even cover the cost for a set of earmolds, if your hearing loss warrants it.
If this the details of these Medicare Advantage plans sound appealing to you, but you aren’t enrolled in either of these plans, I have good news! Open Enrollment for Medicare Advantage plans is happening now through the beginning of December!
