There are several United Healthcare Medicare Advantage plans available to Florida residents; many of which offer hearing aid benefits! These plans can help bring down the cost of hearing aids compared to your cost without insurance.
United Healthcare Hearing, or Epic, is a third-party company contracted with United Healthcare Medicare plans that provide hearing aid benefits to members. They provide a wide range of technology levels from basic to premium. This gives you a better selection so you can choose the level that fits best with your lifestyle and your budget. In addition, Epic works with the six major hearing aid manufacturers. Our Audiologists can help you navigate what hearing aids will work best for you and your budget.
In addition to hearing aid coverage, Epic also provides a 45-day trial period for their members. This allows you to have time to try hearing aids in your day-to-day routine. If you are not satisfied within this trial, you can return the hearing aids for a full refund. It also includes a select amount of follow up visits covered for services like cleanings and adjustments. Many hearing aids on the market are rechargeable, however, if you are interested in batteries, Epic provides at least a year supply of batteries for their members.
It is currently Medicare “Open Enrollment” through December 15th, 2020, which means now is the time to make sure you have hearing aid coverage. If you have questions about your benefits, call the Gardner Audiology insurance team at 1-800-277-1182 or email: email@example.com
