Hearing Doctors of Kansas will gladly bill your insurance company for you. We are a participating provider with most insurance plans.
If you are a federal employee (or a retired federal employee) with federal Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance coverage, you may qualify for a hearing aid benefit that began in 2009. These plans allow for a $2,500 payment for bilateral hearing aids. Read more here, under “Great News on Insurance Coverage for Hearing Aids.”
More and more insurance companies are beginning to cover hearing aids. Unfortunately, many providers, including Medicare, still do not provide coverage for them. But some Medicare tie-in plans may cover part of the costs of hearing aids.
You can contact your insurance provider (or your Medicare tie-in plan, if applicable) to verify insurance coverage for hearing aids. We would also be glad to contact your insurance company on your behalf to verify coverage.
Since most of our patients do not have insurance that covers the cost of hearing aids, we have plans in place that allow you to pay for these services over time. In most cases, we can offer in-house financing over two years without interest charges. Please contact us for more information.
If you have hearing loss, you may be eligible for a free amplified telephone through the Kansas Telecommunications Access Program (TAP). Eligibility depends on household income. See the Kansas TAP website or contact us to learn more.

Most medical doctors recommend an initial audiogram, or hearing exam, at age 65 — even if you haven’t noticed any hearing problems.
