Insurance and Financing

At Crystal Coast Hearing, we work with most major insurance companies, including:

  • Blue Cross Blue Shield
  • Medicare
  • United Health
  • Cigna
  • AARP
  • TriCare
Blue Cross/Blue Shield offers supplemental plans for hearing aid service benefits. These benefits are determined by state. They also have an additional plan called “Blue 365”, which offers additional benefits outside of regular plans. Learn more about Blue 365 hearing healthcare here.

Most plans do not automatically cover hearing healthcare or hearing aids. Even if you have it, insurance coverage for hearing aids varies in the way it is administered. If you want to ask specific questions about the type of coverage you have, simply look at your insurance card to find a toll-free number for member services. Calling your insurance company is the best way to get the most accurate information about your coverage.

There is a wide variety of healthcare insurances and coverage options. Some are listed below with more information and helpful links.

Medicaid could cover hearing aids, depending on your coverage and where you live. Click here to learn more about Medicaid programs offered state-by-state.

Original Medicare (Part A and Part B) does not cover hearing aids.

However, Medicare-eligible beneficiaries may still have options for hearing coverage—either through a state Medicaid program (for those who receive Medicaid) or through a Medicare Advantage plan.

United Healthcare also partners with a hearing healthcare company. Health Innovations (a United Health company) is a separate group that covers all things hearing health and hearing aids. Please visit Health Innovations website to learn more.
Cigna is partnered with a hearing healthcare company named Amplifon to offer their customers a specific kind of coverage. If you have coverage through Cigna, you may be able to get additional coverage through their plan. Learn more of Cigna/Amplifon coverage here.

AARP is a United States-based interest group whose stated mission is “to empower people to choose how they live as they age”. If you have AARP or are thinking about joining AARP, you may be able to take advantage of their hearing healthcare benefits.

The TriWest Healthcare Alliance is contracted with the VA (the Department of Veteran Affairs) to offer their members hearing healthcare and hearing aids. All hearing aid devices will be ordered and procured through the VA, using devices that are currently on the VA Hearing Aid contract. Here is a quick reference guide that covers all regions.
If you don’t see your insurance listed, give us a call. We’re happy to discuss your options.
