It’s normal for hearing loss to occur as we age. Struggling to hear conversations is frustrating, but so can be the price of hearing aids—especially when it’s not covered by Medicare Part A and Part B. So, does Medicare coverage exist for hearing aids? Below we explain the three primary options for hearing aid coverage under Medicare.
Medicare Advantage Plans
Many Medicare Advantage plans offer hearing aid coverage for certain devices through approved vendors. In fact, many of these plans may offer a $0/month premium and include coverage for hearing aids.
If your hearing loss isn’t advanced, over-the-counter hearing aids could be a cost-friendly option. It’s important to note that these hearing aids are designed for people with mild to moderate hearing loss and are not meant for individuals with significant hearing loss.
If you’re on Medicaid, you may be covered for hearing aids depending on your coverage plan and where you live. Luckily, many states provide some level coverage for hearing aids or cover other services like hearing tests and exams, hearing aid repairs and replacements, and other items such as batteries and accessories.
The cost of hearing aids can be overwhelming, but understanding your options can help minimize your out-of-pocket expenses.
