What is a HEARING TEST? 

VIDEO: WHAT TO EXPECT AT AT A HEARING TEST

How do I make an appointment?

1. Call your Physician. 

2. Insist on a referral. At times, physicians will recommend "let's wait." Don't. Insist on a referral. 

3. Call your insurance company and make sure they cover this service. (Often this is covered.)

4. What should I expect? Take a friend or family member with you.

Ask the following questions:

HEARING EVALUATION/HEARING AIDS:

- What are decibels and frequencies? Please show me this on my Audiogram.

- Do I have hearing loss in both ears?

- Do I need to see an ENT? (Severe to profound hearing loss should be evaluated by an ENT to rule out any complications.)

- What are all the devices you sell? Do you sell more than one brand of devices?

- Do you offer some sort of Care Credit or financing options?

- Can you please show me an array of hearing aid options from $1000 to $6000 and discuss the bells and whistles of each?

- Will you let me tell you my budget and we can discuss the options of devices within my budget?

- Which brand has the best warranty?

- Can I try these for 30 days and return them if they aren't working like I expected? Then, could I try a new device/brand?

- How often should I see you for programming once I am fit with my set of hearing aids?

- Which device has the largest market share in the US?

- Which device has the best customer service?

- Which devices offer bluetooth technology?

- How often will I be able to upgrade based on my current insurance? If you don't know, who can help me with this?

- Does your staff have a team which will help me plan this expense long-term? Do the device companies offer that support? Which ones?

- Can I see the costs for the spare parts I will need when something goes wrong?

- Who has the longest warranty?
