What Can Hearing Insurance Provide?

Hearing insurance is a type of insurance coverage that helps to cover the costs associated with hearing healthcare services, such as hearing tests and hearing aids. It is an essential type of coverage for people who have hearing impairments or are at risk of hearing loss due to age or other factors.

Who Benefits from Hearing Care Insurance?

People who would benefit most from hearing insurance are those who are at risk of developing hearing loss due to age or pre-existing conditions, such as noise-induced hearing loss, genetic hearing loss, or chronic ear infections.

Hearing insurance may also benefit people with hearing impairments who require regular hearing tests, hearing aid fittings, or hearing aid maintenance. For example, those who need to purchase multiple hearing aids or require frequent repairs may find that their costs are significantly reduced when they are covered by hearing insurance.

Another type of person who may benefit from hearing insurance is someone who is on a fixed or low income. Hearing healthcare services can be quite costly, and being able to access these services at an affordable rate can be a great benefit.

Schedule an Appointment

Hearing insurance can be an invaluable resource for people who are at risk of developing hearing loss, have existing hearing impairments, or are on a limited budget.

United Healthcare Insurance Plans

United Healthcare’s Medicare Advantage plans in Utah offer coverage for a yearly hearing evaluation, as well as co-pay amounts ranging from $375 to $1,425 (up to two per year) towards hearing aids if they’re provided by United Healthcare Hearing.

These plans are offered in partnership with the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), and they cover portions of co-pay, out-of-pocket, hearing exams, and hearing aid costs.

Depending on the plan, co-pay amounts and monthly premiums vary, as well as the in-network out-of-pocket maximums. United Healthcare also offers one Part C plan that is not in partnership with AARP, with a co-pay of $10 for a primary care provider and $50 for a specialist, as well as a $49 monthly premium and an out-of-pocket maximum of $7,500.
