    The benefits from any insurance provider is based on the specific contract between the insurance company and the employer. There any number of benefits or benefit levels that the employer may purchase / provide within the insurance policy. The more and better benefits, the higher premium cost to the employer. It has been my experience that coverage for hearing aids is few and far between in insurance policies. Today, any hearing aid benefit is a blessing.

    Try government recognized insurance company would be the great option for insurance. They have great insurance plans which are really legit and profitable too.

    Can someone confirm that United Health Care is indeed paying 100% for hearing aids for the 2012 season? I have read elsewhere in this forum that there's a catch--you have to buy their specific aids. I need to know before I enroll with UHC. Thanks!

    Just a note that I called them on this and they said they are going to fast track it to management and get me an answer tomorrow. The rep on the phone said they pay 100%...but she said she would call me back with more info. Will report back.

    If not, Blue Cross is doing $1250 per ear, so I may go with them.

    Really? What plan? I have Anthem Blue Cross (Keycare 300) and they only pay for the hearing test, not for aids.

    I have Blue Cross (Basic version) from my employer, a federal agency. Perhaps that is why.

    Hi all,
    I have an update. I finally spoke to UHC about the 100% hearing aid coverage and they told me that it is correct, however, they only pay for ONE aid (not both ears) and you have to go through EPIC HEARING.

    Currently, my employer plan pays $1250 per aid, but even if UHC paid 100% of one aid, it may still be cheaper to go with UHC. I don't know anything about Epic Hearing, but they claim that they sell brand names and not a private label version.

    Does anyone know more?

    4K = L 80 R 85
    6K = L 80 R 80
