Does Medicare Cover Hearing Aids? The Surprising Truth

Does Medicare Cover Hearing Aids? | The Surprising Truth

Let’s dive into Medicare and hearing aids, a matter that impacts so many lives yet remains shrouded in mystery.

Original Medicare Part A and Part B: The Silent Treatment

You’d think that Original Medicare, Parts A and B, would have your back when it comes to hearing aids. Think again. Original Medicare doesn’t typically cover routine hearing exams, hearing aids, or fittings. The same applies when you have a Medigap Supplement ─ there’s no coverage for routine hearing exams or hearing aids. Surprising, right?

Medicare Part C Advantage Plans to the Rescue

Possibly good news is that Medicare Advantage plans might be music to your ears. Some of these go above and beyond, offering coverage for hearing aids and related services. The extent of coverage varies from plan to plan. It could be a discount program or full coverage of premium hearing technology.

What to Look For

Let’s be informed when selecting a Medicare Advantage plan – so here’s a checklist:

  • Preferred Providers: Check if your plan requires specific in-network providers for better coverage. Ensure your preferred hearing specialists are on the list.
  • Hearing Examinations: Does the plan include routine screenings and hearing tests? Be aware of any deductibles or copayments tied to hearing benefits.
  • Fittings: Look into coverage for fitting sessions, considering the number of sessions allowed to ensure your devices are perfectly tuned.
  • Hearing Aids: How much coverage is provided for hearing aids? Some plans may fully or partially cover the cost.
  • Additional Benefits: Explore extra services like maintenance and batteries.

Don’t let hearing aid coverage be your silent struggle. Speak with your trusted independent Medicare broker if you need additional assistance with Medicare-related hearing coverage.
