To help you navigate your insurance benefits, we have a team of insurance specialists who can take on this task. 

Blue Cross Blue Shield and Hearing Aid Coverage

All Blue Cross Blue Shield plans vary greatly in their extent of coverage for hearing aids and related services.

Some plans may cover a comprehensive hearing evaluation and even include a certain amount towards the purchase of hearing aids. However, the specific details and coverage amount can differ significantly between different plans and policyholders. 

As part of our commitment to ensuring you receive all the benefits to which you’re entitled, our insurance specialists will perform a detailed review of your specific Blue Cross Blue Shield policy.

They will identify the coverage limits, deductible amounts, and any other details that impact your hearing healthcare. 

Eligibility for Coverage

To qualify for coverage under most Blue Cross Blue Shield policies, several eligibility criteria must be met:

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