Hearing Coverage for Medicare Beneficiaries
Original Medicare (Part A & Part B) does not provide coverage for the costs of hearing care or hearing aids. Additionally, Medicare Supplement Plans only help pay for Medicare-approved expenses, so even if you’ve purchased this type of plan to fill your coverage gaps, the cost of hearing care is still not covered. If you find yourself in this situation, there are a few options that may help.
Many Medicare Advantage Plans (also known as Medicare Part C) offer hearing care and hearing aid coverage through approved physicians and providers. Plus, many of these plans offer $0/month premiums.
If you qualify for and are on Medicaid, your plan could include coverage for hearing aids. Medicaid is funded through the federal government and also by individual state governments, so benefits can vary from state-to-state.
Lastly, the 2017 Over the Counter (OTC) Hearing Aid Act is intended to improve access to hearing aids for seniors with mild hearing loss by allowing some hearing aids to be sold over the counter without a prescription.
