The insurance plan you carry may or may not cover hearing and hearing aid-related healthcare.  We have found that the best way to know is to call, ask, and verify your particular benefits.

If you have an insurance carrier that covers hearing and hearing aid-related healthcare and would like our practice to serve you, then please let us know and we will examine whether we can enroll as a provider with that insurance carrier.

Medicare Part B covers diagnostic hearing exams once per 12 month period for assessment of non-acute hearing loss.

Medicare Part B does not cover routine hearing exams, hearing aids, or fitting of hearing aids.

There are many Medicare Part C (also known as Medicare Advantage plans) that do cover hearing aids in full or offer hearing aids for a copay amount.   The hearing exam may be covered in full or have a much smaller copay (similar to office visits for a specialty doctor).  Dr. Johnson’s practice participates as a provider for many of these supplemental insurance plans.
