Yes, just within the last 2 weeks  the hearing center in Tacoma, WA said that I am needing to get hearing aids it is very recommended. They said with my insurance I was unable to get hearing aids.

Medicare? Or Medicaide? Ordinarily Medicare does not cover anything more than the hearing test: does not pay anything toward hearing aids.

Many times an audiologist will have used models that have been refurbished and have a warranty.  A licensed audiologist can test your hearing and recommend the best type of aid or other corrections that can help people in their life. 

 

They also know other things which maybe available on the marketplace to help with a specific type of problem. 

 

My mother had an audiologist that we worked with for over 40 years - he worked with a local deaf school and he always took the finances of people in mind or he helped find them financial resources.

The VA as a benefit will supply hearing aids to those qualified free of charge.

I have had my hearing tested 3 times. Fortunately they came back with a conssitant result. I'm trying to decide what the best unit is before i purchase. Can anyone give me some insight on the Starkey Premier iSDS or the Seimens top brand or Sam's Club top brand. Any helpful direction would be appreciated. I need to make a choice.
