insurance 1Health insurance companies generally cover hearing evaluation and testing, though they may be subject to a deductible or co-insurance. Hearing aids typically aren’t covered, but you should review your plan or consult with an insurance administrator to be sure.

We require a physician referral for all services when we bill your insurance company.

 

Coverage

Olympic Hearing CenterFor eligible children and young adults ages 21 and under, Medicaid will pay for the diagnosis and treatment of hearing loss, including hearing aids, under the Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnostic, and Treatment (EPSDT) service. Also, children may be covered by Washington’s early intervention program or State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP).

Medicare does not cover hearing aids for adults; however, diagnostic evaluations are covered if ordered by a physician for the purpose of assisting the physician in developing a treatment plan. Since Medicare has declared the Bone-Anchored Hearing Aid (BAHA) a prosthetic device and not a hearing aid, Medicare will cover the BAHA if other coverage policies are met.

Some non-profit organizations provide financial assistance for hearing aids, while others may help provide used or refurbished aids.
