Hearing aid insurance benefits is a pretty hot topic, especially at the beginning of the year when plans and benefits are renewing. More and more insurance plans are starting to include some sort of benefit for hearing aids. In 2021, Aetna Medicare PPO is offering hearing aid benefits! Aetna Medicare PPO is contracting through a third-party company, called Nations Hearing, to provide their members with hearing aid benefits.
You might be wondering, “what is a third-party company?” and “Is that normal?” Well, insurance companies use a third-party company to ensure cheaper priced hearing aids for their members. These prices are often much lower than you would find at an Audiology practice, and may even include options as low as $0 out-of-pocket! And don’t worry, this is a very common trend with insurance companies lately! Several insurance plans are contracting out for their hearing aid benefits, so that they can give their members the most affordable options out there. Gardner Audiology in Palm Harbor, FL is an in-network preferred provider for several insurance plans and third-party companies, including Nations Hearing!
Nations Hearing offers hearing aids from all major manufacturers, in all styles and all technology levels. For the most part, these are the same hearing aids that would be available if you were paying full price out-of-pocket. Nations Hearing offers options that appeal to all lifestyles – in-the-ear and behind-the-ear styles, rechargeable and standard battery options, and Bluetooth connectivity for certain models! Nations Hearing will also cover a limited amount of follow up visits, just enough to get you comfortable with the hearing aids.
