How Much Are Hearing Aids?

How Much Do Hearing Aids and Hearing Care Cost?

by | Nov 17, 2020 | Hearing Aids, Patient Resources

If you’re reading this article, it’s probably because either you or someone special in your life is experiencing a hearing challenge, as millions of Americans do every year.

But despite the prevalence of this issue, it’s often hard to find out how much investment you’ll need to get a great solution.

The reason for this is that those running hearing care clinics across the country often prefer not to give straight answers when it comes to pricing. However, I’m going to do my utmost to inform you of the different options available at Audicles Hearing Services.

But before we talk about the possibilities, I wanted to explain something key that not many people know about hearing care solutions. When you treat an issue, most of your investment covers the level of hearing care and the long-term support that you receive from an expert, NOT the cost of your hearing aids.

Think of it in relation to how you could keep a car in good working order.

  • If something went wrong, you could save money by buying the parts from the manufacturer and then asking someone with mechanical experience to fit them, hoping that they do the right thing.
  • On the other hand, you could ask the dealer to find the parts for you from a trusted source, and then have their team of experts fit them under a warranty and support agreement – knowing that they’ll always have your back if something goes wrong.

In line with this metaphor, it is possible to snap up a pair of hearing aids for around $1200, which won’t come with a care or treatment plan package. These will likely make some difference to your ability to hear sounds, as they’ll amplify the noises in your local environment.

But the downside is that they’re unlikely to provide a lasting solution to what often is a long-term issue. In essence, you’ll be putting a band-aid over a wound, which is only likely to get worse without expert attention.

Audiologists work hard to reduce the rate of decline in someone’s hearing, letting them lead an exciting, vibrant life for years to come. With a plan package, you can take advantage of their technical support and long-term expert care, ensuring that you’re never without the help you need.

And the great thing about these is that they come in all shapes and sizes, so you can find the right package to fit your individual needs.

You can personalize your treatment plan with:

  • Alternative levels of technology: people experiencing a hearing loss will need different types of instruments, and you can choose a plan that fits your requirement. Some people who lead busy, intense lives may opt for a “best-in-class” model; others who simply want to communicate with their loved ones better may be best suited to our “essential” devices.
  • Different types of warranty: you can also adjust your plan in relation to the type of warranty you want. There are different lengths – from two to four years – and you can choose the right one for yourself depending on your budget. With a warranty, you’ll never have to worry if your device gets damaged, stops working, or gets lost.
  • Options for care and support: you may also opt for a different level of care and support depending on your budget. Your audiologist will help you to achieve the best possible outcomes from your hearing technology, and you can decide how regularly you wish to be in contact with them.
  • Extra services: you’ll also be able to take advantage of extra benefits such as inclusive accessories and our telehealth support platform, Virtual Audicles.

Each treatment plan includes a unique combination of these different options, giving you control over the type of care and technology you receive at Audicles Hearing Services.

Our treatment plans range from $2500 to $7490 – and there are several payment options available for each of them.

I hope this article helps you to understand how you can find the best solution to your hearing problem, and why working with the right provider is so important.
