According to the Hearing Aid Forums, Health Innovations is a subsidiary of United Health Group, the provider of United Healthcare insurance plans, which provides AARP’s Medicare supplementary coverage.If you’re insured by United Healthcare, these hearing aids will be covered and you will pay around 0 each.If you’re on Medicare with AARP’s supplementary insurance these are a no-brainer.
Government and nonprofit sites such as the National Institute on Deafness only give very basic information.
After surfing the Hearing Aid Forums I found out that digital hearing aids are adjustable by the user and that all this time, I could have been making all kinds of little adjustments.
I also learned that I could have gotten a much better deal at Costco.
Costco is the low-cost hearing aid provider that’s rated highest on the hearing aid forums (and probably everywhere else, too).
Costco offers the same brands and models you can find at an audiologist’s office for about half the price (with the exception of the Kirkland, which is the Costco brand).
Here’s another thing I learned: The reason 80 percent of hard of hearing Americans find hearing aids too pricey to bother with might have something to do with the fact that they’re sold by only a few companies that keep a monopolistic control over the prices.
