After you’ve had your hearing tested and have made the decision to invest in a hearing aid, your next decision will be how you’re going to pay for it. Our staff at Concept understands that modern hearing aids and professional fittings are significant expenses, particularly for patients on a fixed income. Many of our patients are surprised to learn that most standard medical insurance plans, including Medicare, don’t cover the cost of standard hearing exams and hearing aids. We can help by offering alternative financing options. Our patients tell us that their investment in a hearing aid and professional fitting added immensely to their quality of life, and we want to help you improve yours.
Hearing Aid Financing Options
At Concept, we have a number of programs to help make paying for your hearing health expenses as affordable as possible. We offer financing through an established, reputable lender you can trust – Wells Fargo Health Advantage®.
The application is completed in just a few minutes and can often be approved and processed during your visit to one of our statewide clinics.
Homeowners may prefer a consumer loan or to tap into their home equity to cover these expenses. Generally, the interest rate on these loans is lower than that of a credit card. Still, your bank will likely add processing fees to the loan, along with additional time to process it, adding expense and delay to you receiving your equipment.
Saving Money on Hearing Health Maintenance
Once you have your diagnosis and have your hearing aid, continuing to take care of your hearing health is crucial. You will need to follow up regularly with your provider to maintain your hearing aids. Concept helps defray the cost of ongoing care by offering lifelong free follow-up visits, yearly battery deals, and extended warranties. We also offer Family and Friends rewards dollars for every referral and gift certificates.
Hearing Aid Trade-In Program
Advances in hearing technology help enable us to continuously provide you with more natural sound quality for a better hearing experience. When you want to upgrade your hearing aid, an easy and affordable way to take advantage of the newest technology is to trade in your current devices and apply that value to the purchase of your new pair. At Concept, we are pleased to offer this trade-in value option to allow you to upgrade to a newer selection while saving money.
If you believe that you or someone you love is suffering from hearing loss, it’s important that you or they see a hearing health specialist as soon as possible.
