According to the National Center for Health Statistics, almost half of people 75 or older have disabling hearing loss. As you age, you may have trouble hearing high-pitched sounds or following a conversation due to background noise.
If you have difficulty hearing, talk to your doctor about having a hearing test. Your doctor can help determine if your hearing loss is related to normal aging, a medical condition, or a medication you may be taking. There are many ways to improve your hearing, including using hearing aids.
Tufts Medicare Preferred HMO members are covered for up to 2 hearing aids per year, 1 hearing aid per ear. There are four levels to choose from and pricing is fixed!
You’re also covered for a $0 hearing aid evaluation once per year with a Hearing Care Solutions provider.
Your hearing aid benefit is administered by Hearing Care Solutions (HCS), a national program with over 4,000 locations that simplifies hearing care by offering fixed, discounted prices on hearing aids. HCS will schedule a hearing exam for you and answer any questions you have about hearing aids and pricing.
If you have any issues with your hearing aids, you are eligible for unlimited follow-up visits with your audiologist during the first year. Follow up visits have a $0 copay.
This benefit is offered through Hearing Care Solutions. Benefit described applies to Tufts Medicare Preferred HMO members. Benefit details and savings may be different or not apply if you receive your benefits from a current or former employer. If a hearing exam is performed at the same time as the hearing aid evaluation, a copayment may apply. For complete details, see your Evidence of Coverage booklet.
