I’m seeing a new audie on Monday after much encouragement from my girlfriend. I learned last week that my insurance will cover up to $2000 per ear every 36 months. I almost cried when I found that out. I’ve had to pay out of pocket for the last three pair I’ve had, over $5000 for a pair. At one point, it was a choice between new pair of hearing aids and a car…
Health care insurance in the US blows a lot of the time.
That being said, I’m looking to get the newest kind of aids out there. I’ve only used Widex and Phonak but am open to others.
What would you guys recommend? I currently wear bilateral BTE with moderate-severe (some areas profound), Phonak Audéo.
I’m not looking forward to being stuck in a soundproof booth for a half hour to get a hearing test… but it’s important.
Girlfriend: Does an audiologist’s office have referral forms?
Me: Yeah… why?
Girlfriend: Do they ask, “Where did you *hear* about us?”
