How much do hearing aids cost?

The evaluation determines the type of hearing aids that will work best for you, so I can’t give you an exact number, but hearing aids start at around $1600-$2600.  Each manufacturer has different price points.  ENT Specialists sells hearing aids from ReSound, Starkey and Siemens manufacturers. To meet your hearing needs, it’s important to get a quality product from a reliable manufacturer.

To determine candidacy for hearing help, I think it’s very important that you come in for an evaluation.  Our audiologists will conduct a thorough hearing exam and discuss appropriate treatment options for you.

ENT Specialists does offer a 5% cash discount and also offers interest-free financing.

Do you charge for the hearing test or demonstration?

Most insurance providers, including Medicare, annually cover the full cost of the hearing test, minus any co-pay or individual deductible.  Which insurance do you carry? The consultation and demonstration of current hearing aid technology is always free of charge.

Does insurance cover the cost of hearing aids?

Most insurance providers, including Medicare, annually cover the full cost of the hearing test, minus any co-pay or individual deductible.  Occasionally insurances do cover the cost of the actual hearing aids, also.  Your consultation and demonstration of current hearing aid technology is always free of charge.  If you qualify for hearing aids, and once we determine which product is suitable for you, we can make contact with your insurance company to check hearing aid coverage.

Why should I bring a friend of family member?

Someone who knows you best will have personal perspective on your hearing situations and will help the hearing professional better understand your listening needs.  Moreover, a familiar voice is helpful during the evaluation to measure hearing improvement while demonstrating hearing aids. You will also be given a lot of new information to remember; having a companion present to help you take notes is smart.
