How To Improve Your Hearing: A Member's Guide

The First Step Toward Better Hearing Is Utilizing Your Hearing Benefit
Last update on Jun, 24, 2024

While it's true that hearing loss affects everyone as they age, we don't have to compromise our lifestyle and habits to treat hearing loss. There is one way you can take control of your hearing health and start on a path to whole body wellness.

It starts with understanding your hearing benefit and ends with you maximizing its potential for the journey ahead.

What Is a Hearing Benefit?

A hearing benefit is insurance coverage for products and services that help you address hearing-related issues. These benefits might include coverage for hearing tests and hearing aid evaluations, hearing aids, and other related medical services or devices.

Your health insurance may already include a hearing benefit you're unaware of or need help incorporating into your preventive care plan.

In this article, we'll address both scenarios, so you know how to maximize your hearing benefit.

How Do I Know If I Have a Hearing Benefit?

Using Amplifon's Check Your Benefits tool, you can find out if you have a hearing benefit today. It's free and easy to use. Simply fill out the online form, and an Amplifon Patient Care Advocate will contact you with a few follow-up questions. From there, they'll review and verify your hearing benefit and provide guidance and support on the next steps.

Our goal is to ensure you fully understand your coverage options so that you can make informed decisions about how to improve your hearing and have access to hearing aids that fit your lifestyle and budget. We can also assist you in finding a nearby hearing care provider, scheduling your appointment, and preparing for your first visit.

How Can My Benefit Improve Hearing?

Now that you know your coverage options, let's discuss how a hearing benefit can impact your quality of life.

Hearing health care can make addressing your hearing health needs more affordable, leading to early detection of hearing loss, intervention, and access to appropriate treatments when required.

Consider why you prioritize medical health care. By taking care of your physical and mental health now, you can protect yourself from serious illnesses or comorbidities that can be life-altering and costly in the future.

We're all taught that early intervention often means fewer treatments and higher success rates, which is why utilizing your dental and vision coverage is just as important. These areas of your body also play a vital role in your overall health. Simply put, when one part of the body isn't functioning correctly, the rest of the body is affected. Hearing is no different.

Why Your Hearing Health Matters

Healthy hearing is essential for effective communication, maintaining social relationships, and staying aware of our environment.

When we experience hearing loss, it can lead to feelings of isolation and frustration, injury-causing falls, and even contribute to cognitive decline. By prioritizing our hearing health, we can ensure that we can fully engage with the world around us and safeguard our mental, physical, and emotional well-being.

How Can I Make the Most of My Hearing Benefit?

If you have a hearing benefit through Amplifon Hearing Health Care, you can access much more than just hearing aids. But if you've never been to a hearing care provider or had hearing aids in the past, you may not know how to take advantage of this additional value.


Dr. Carrie Meyer, an audiologist and Amplifon's Director of Clinical Programs, outlines five steps to maximizing your hearing benefits.



Step 1: Ask questions

Dr. Meyer: "If you're not sure if you have a hearing benefit through Amplifon, don’t know where the nearest hearing care provider is, or have questions about the program, an Amplifon Patient Care Advocate will be there for you every step of the way to answer questions and point you in the right direction to get the best care for your hearing."

You can check your benefits online, call a Patient Care Advocate at 844-267-5436, or use Amplifon's online chat tool.

Step 2: Find a local provider

Dr. Meyer: "Amplifon makes finding a quality, local provider easy. With over 6,000 in-network locations, you'll never need to search far for the care you need. Your Patient Care Advocate can schedule an appointment on your behalf, at a clinic near you."

Step 3: Find the right fit

Dr. Meyer: "Finding the right hearing aids can sometimes be like buying a new car. You must decide which brand and model will meet your needs and which features you ‘can’t live without.’ Similarly, your hearing care provider will work with you to select a hearing aid that suits your lifestyle, budget, and degree of hearing loss."

Did you know that with an Amplifon benefit, you can also try your hearing aids risk-free for 60 days? If you find that your hearing aids just aren’t the right match, you can return them with no return or restocking fees.

Step 4: Take advantage of follow-up care

Dr. Meyer: "Do you adjust your speakers to find the right amount of treble, bass, and balance? Maybe you set up your smartphone so all your favorite apps are at your fingertips. Just like any other piece of technology, hearing aids need to be adjusted to feel comfortable and work effectively. It's important that you work with your provider to get your hearing aids adjusted properly, which is why Amplifon offers complimentary aftercare at no additional cost to you."

Step 5: Know you're covered

Step 5: Know you're covered

Dr. Meyer: "Hearing aids are an investment, both financially and for your quality of life. I've had many frantic calls and appointments with patients who have lost or damaged their hearing aids. I've even heard, 'the dog ate my hearing aid.' Don't worry. Accidents happen, but with an Amplifon benefit, you can rest easy knowing that we offer a warranty for loss, damage, or repairs."
