Hearing Aid Benefits | Insurance Coverage
Does Your Medicare Supplement Cover Hearing Aids?
Insurance coverage for hearing aids is a “strange duck”. The Medicare Handbook says that hearing aids are a specific exclusion. In other words, a non covered item. Recently, Medigap insurance has found that by taking care of people’s hearing needs, people stay on their coverage. In other words, better care equals a better bottom line.
It used to be that hearing aids were considered “cosmetic” by the insurance companies and the government. Anyone who has experienced or knows someone who has experienced hearing loss knows that even a mild loss can make a HUGE impact on your work and personal life – not to mention on those around you!
There have been many recent studies linking untreated hearing loss to many comorbidities – and even to increasing the likelihood of dementia! All of the accumulating data and consumer awareness of the effects of untreated hearing loss is forcing insurance companies to take the issue more seriously. More and more insurance plans are starting to cover hearing aids.
