Hearing Aids and the Price
As you age, hearing becomes a topic of importance. The ability to hear sound diminishes naturally for some people as they age. For others, exposure to loud noises throughout their life catches up to them when they get older. No matter the reason for hearing loss, hearing care is a topic of critical importance for your overall quality of life. A common misconception about hearing aids is that they are all expensive. Today we’ll discuss this misconception, along with other affordable services available from Beltone Audiology.
If you are researching your first hearing aid, you may be unfamiliar with the process of getting a hearing aid. A lot of individuals worry about the process itself, but in the end, it is a simple visit to the audiologist. Specifically, the first step in the process of getting a hearing aid is a free hearing test at Beltone Audiology. This is a quick test that you can get at any of Beltone’s twenty-seven locations in Georgia, Alabama, or Mississippi free of charge. This is an easy process and you can schedule your visit by phone or online.
If the results from your test and the recommendations from your audiologist suggest you would be a good candidate for a hearing aid, the audiologist will go over the options with you in terms of style, functionality, and price point.
Another misconception about hearing aids is that they are big and bulky. It is common that people worry about a hearing aid being visible by other people. This used to be the case, but hearing aids have evolved to be smaller and more high-tech. Now, they are so small that other people won’t see them if you don’t want them to.
The two main categories of hearing aids are Behind-the-Ear (BTE) and In-the-Canal (ITC). BTE styles sit just behind the ear and thanks to updated technology are difficult for others to see. The other hearing aid option is ITC, which sits inside the ear, making it completely undetectable. The ITC hearing aids can even be controlled by an external device so that you do not have to worry about getting it in and out of your ear to change the volume. You can discuss the differences of each type of hearing aid with the audiologists at Beltone Audiology to determine the best fit for you.
Beltone offers a variety of options to make hearing care affordable for you. Specifically, Beltone accepts most insurances and is happy to work with you to make living with your hearing loss easier. Additionally, there are payment plans available. Lastly, you can get a CareCredit card that comes with no upfront cost and low minimum monthly payments.
