5-Star-Rated Los Gatos, CA, Hearing Care
We are an out-of-network provider for all insurances but that is OK. Most insurances, including Medicare, do not cover normal, age-related hearing tests. If you believe it is covered (and you would like it paid for), follow these steps:
- Secure a doctor’s note to see us first.
- Pay us for all services.
- Submit your receipts to your insurance carrier for reimbursement. This procedure helps keep our costs down. In the case of Medicare, we can submit your receipts on your behalf to the government for reimbursement. After submission, your reimbursement is out of our hands.
Hearing aids are almost never covered by insurance unless your employer has an added benefit. When checking if your insurance has a hearing aid benefit, ask them for a reimbursement form and ask them what the maximum allowable benefit is. Act like you have already purchased your hearing devices. Some insurance companies have will try to send you to their own clinics or aid manufacturers and attempt to write your prescription themselves.
