Hearing aids are generally not covered by health insurance companies. However, some insurance policies do include hearing aid benefits. We would be glad to verify coverage and provide any assistance necessary for you to utilize any hearing aid benefit you may have.
Medicare does not cover hearing aids for adults; however, diagnostic evaluations are covered if they are ordered by a physician for the purpose of assisting the physician in developing a treatment plan. Since Medicare has declared the BAHA a prosthetic device and not a hearing aid, Medicare will cover the BAHA if other coverage policies are met.
BAHA devices are available from an Ohio ENT physician.
