Demand more from a hearing benefit

You and your members deserve better

Hearing benefits have become a staple of many health plans. And for good reason: Nearly 40 million Americans are experiencing hearing loss. But not all hearing benefits deliver equal return on investment for your members and your organization.

Beyond a ‘check-the-box’ benefit

What sets the best hearing benefits apart from those that simply check-the-box?

Certainly, there’s value. A hearing benefit should make hearing health care truly affordable and accessible to all. It should also offer extensive hearing aid choice, ensuring the best possible hearing solution to address each member’s unique needs and preferences, without manufacturer bias or the pressure to upsell.

A strong commitment to overall health

Research shows that hearing loss is a risk factor for life-altering health conditions, including depression, dementia and injury-causing falls. And when hearing loss goes untreated, medical costs go up — to the tune of $22,434 per patient, with health plans covering $20,403 of this amount.

The hidden costs of hearing loss

Depression

  • The average yearly cost to treat depression is $20,000+.
  • People with untreated hearing loss are 47% more likely to experience depression.

Dementia

  • The average yearly cost to treat dementia is $25,200+.
  • People with hearing loss are up to 5x more likely to experience dementia.

Catastrophic Fall

  • The average yearly cost to treat a catastrophic fall is $13,700+.
  • People with untreated hearing loss are 3x more likely to experience a catastrophic fall.

A hearing benefit should address hearing loss comorbidities by providing access to a high-quality provider network that delivers unbiased, evidence-based care. Members who receive this level of care are more likely to wear their hearing aids and enjoy all of the benefits of amplification.
