Ensuring optimal hearing health is a priority at Jacobs Audiology. With offices in Bowie, Southern Maryland, and Waldorf, we provide comprehensive audiological care that is both caring and local. 

We understand that one of the key concerns for our patients is insurance coverage for hearing aids. To help ease this burden, our team includes insurance specialists who can delve into the details of your policy, including policies from United Healthcare. 

United Healthcare and Hearing Aid Coverage 

Coverage for hearing aids varies widely across insurance providers and individual plans.

When it comes to United Healthcare, certain policies may offer coverage for a comprehensive hearing evaluation and hearing aids, while others may not. The scope of coverage can vary significantly, which is why it’s crucial to examine your policy in detail. 

At Jacobs Audiology, we don’t want insurance confusion to stand in your way to better hearing health. Our insurance specialists can review your United Healthcare policy for you, checking the specifics of your coverage, the deductible, and extents/limits of coverage. 

Eligibility for Coverage

For a hearing aid to qualify for coverage under most United Healthcare policies, there are certain eligibility criteria that must be met: 

  1. A valid audiogram, sound field speech audiometry, or equivalent test results certified by a licensed audiologist, ENT doctor, or otologist must be presented. 
  2. You must provide written documentation from a licensed audiologist, ENT doctor, or otologist recommending hearing aids. 
  3. The purchase and fitting of hearing aids must occur within six months from the date of the written recommendation.
