Purchasing hearing aids is a critical step in restoring your hearing. After discussing your options with one of our hearing specialists and testing the pair of hearing aids you’re interested in, we will place an order for you.
We realize hearing aids represent a significant investment in your healthcare budget. Our hearing specialists at El Dorado Hearing will provide you with all the hearing loss financial information to purchase your hearing aids possible.
We do not want financial issues standing in the way of your better hearing.
Use Insurance to Purchase Hearing Aids
Some insurance providers cover the cost of hearing aids–at least partially. If you have Medicare, and depending on your plan, you may have hearing aid coverage.
To find out, you give your insurance information to our hearing specialists, and they’ll check to see what coverage your provider offers. It’s best to do this ahead of your appointment. That way, our staff can confirm your insurance coverage and have the information by the end of your appointment.
Hearing Aid Financing Options
Whether your hearing aids are partially covered by insurance or not, you may still need other financing options. At our hearing clinics, we provide multiple hearing aids financing routes so you can find the one that fits your budget.
We want to make hearing loss financial information easy for you!
There are a variety of payment plans you can choose from to help finance your hearing aids. Our primary financing options are:
- CareCredit – Health financing through a third party with various payment options, including 12 months interest-free and extended payment plans up to 60 months.
- Wells Fargo – Health financing through a third party with various payment options, including 12 months interest-free and extended payment plans up to 60 months.
- HealthiPlan – Health financing through a third party with various payment options, including 12 months interest-free and extended payment plans up to 60 months.
We also accept debit and credit cards for payment of hearing services. Specifically, we accept:
- American Express
If you have a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or a Health Saving Account (HSA), hearing aids are a qualified expense, and you may use the funds for this expense. You will not have to pay taxes on the money you withdraw to pay for your hearing aids.
Purchasing Extended Hearing Aid Warranties
When looking to purchase a hearing aid, consider adding an extended hearing aid warranty to your purchase. Many hearing aid manufacturers will provide a 1-3 year warranty to cover their devices. However, hearing aids can last between 3-5 years with good care.
At El Dorado Hearing of Tucson, we offer extended warranties so you can maintain your hearing aids throughout their entire lifetime. These extended warranties will cover the significant repairs your hearing aids may need, such as:
- Wiring problems
- Case damage
- Onetime full replacement
So, as you consider your financing options, be sure to talk to our hearing specialists to see if an extended warranty is right for you.
Receive Help Purchasing Your Hearing Aids
If these options don’t work for you, the Starkey Hear Now assistance program might help you receive the hearing aids you need. Through this program, your hearing aids may be heavily discounted or given to you completely free.
