Use Health Insurance Benefits and FSA Funds to Your Advantage
Hearing insurance, while only offered to about 15 percent of the workforce, can provide much greater relief in terms of cost. Regardless, these benefits run dry at the end of the year if they aren’t used, so be sure to contact your insurer for more information about your specific policy. Your employer may also offer an FSA or HSA (flexible spending account or health spending account) that pulls money from your paycheck pre-tax and sets it aside for future medical expenses. In this case, the costs would still come out of your pocket, but it would be untaxed. If you’ve already used your FSA funds for the year, please consider what your hearing needs will be next year when you sit down with your company’s benefits coordinator and decide how much of your paycheck you’d like to reserve tax-free.
Medical Insurance Benefits
Amdahl Hearing is a preferred provider for most medical insurance plans. Some plans have a hearing aid benefit. During our initial consultation, we will do a complimentary insurance check for you. Our experts can help you take full advantage of your health insurance benefits. Amdahl Hearing will be happy to assist you in determining or clarifying your benefit and if contracted with them, will directly bill your insurance company for payment if services are rendered. We participate with most insurance carriers and benefit programs. We are committed to working directly with you and your insurance company to help determine the extent of your coverage, and to make sure that you are getting the most out of your current benefits. However, the true amount of coverage cannot be determined until your insurance company processes your claim. Coverage quoted by your insurance company does not guarantee payment.
For those times where you may be confused or have questions about your benefit, we have a dedicated insurance person to answer those questions. We will work hard to make the complicated process of billing insurance as easy as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions
Will Medicare pay for my hearing care needs?
Audiologic testing and additional services are partially covered under Medicare, but only if the exam is recommended by your physician and only if there is an active, associated medical condition. Once the hearing loss is diagnosed, annual exams are rarely covered. Medicare excludes hearing aids and hearing aid-related exams, as do the supplemental plans.
