You don’t need me to tell you that hearing aids are expensive – you already know that! But did you know that there are things you can do to help reduce the cost of hearing aids without sacrificing the hearing treatment?
Here, I’ll discuss the six things you can do to save money on hearing aids.
Don’t sacrifice the quality of care in order to save some money. Plenty of clinics out there will sell you a hearing device for extremely cheap, but they will not provide you with the adequate fitting and follow up care to ensure that the devices actually work properly for you. They’ll make their easy money, you’ll never come back in for their follow-up (because they won’t provide you good follow-up), and ultimately, you’ll be left with the impression that hearing aids just don’t work for you – which is largely not the case!
If you’re a candidate for hearing aids, there is absolutely no reason that you do not benefit with your hearing aids. This only happens if you got the completely wrong type of hearing aids for you and if the fitting and follow-up are horrible.
Hearing aids are expensive. In this video, Dr. Clifford Olson from Applied Hearing Solutions in Anthem Arizona, discusses 6 ways you can save money on your next pair of hearing aids.
#1. Check your insurance for hearing aid benefit
#2. Don't upgrade your hearing aids, get them programmed better
#3. Buy lower level technology, just get them programmed well
#4. Finance your hearing aids and spread your payments over time
#5. Buy your hearing aids online and get them programmed by an audiologist
#6. Go to a clinic that unbundles the cost of devices from their professional services
