Your University of Pittsburgh Referral

University of Pittsburgh hearing program

Powered by Amplifon Hearing Health Care

The University of Pittsburgh hearing program is an exclusive new Amplifon Hearing Health Care plan that offers a funded benefit. This plan went into effect July 1, 2019.

Hearing Testing

For providers that charge for testing as part of your normal routine, please note that you cannot submit testing claims directly to the plan. Instead, testing charges need to be processed through Amplifon.

Hearing Aids

Pre-Fitting information:

  1. Member is referred to clinic and appointment is scheduled.
  2. Amplifon verifies insurance benefits - the plan offers a $1,800 allowance per ear, which applies to testing, devices, and accessories.
  3. Members can purchase higher priced hearing aid(s); however, they are responsible for the price difference. For example, if they choose a device priced at $2,295, they would be responsible for $495.
  4. Provider recommends hearing aid(s) and disclosure form is generated from the provider portal and must be reviewed and signed by member.
  5. Provider orders from the manufacturer using the appropriate Amplifon bill-to number and your ship-to address. Please reference the PO reference number located on the Receipt of Delivery form. Amplifon pays the manufacturer for hearing aids and earmolds.

Fitting and Payment:

  1. Patient pays 'patient responsibility' in full. Payment to Amplifon may be made via e-check or credit card through the provider portal, or through Care Credit and must be forwarded to Amplifon. If patient cannot pay by e-check, credit card, or Care Credit, then payment by check will be accepted. Checks should be made payable to Amplifon Hearing Health Care.
  2. Please send the signed Receipt of Delivery and disclosure form along with the packing slip from the manufacturer to Amplifon Hearing Health Care within 24 hours of fitting.
