The discount for veterans is an expansion of an affordable hearing aid program already available to people enrolled in UnitedHealthcare individual and employer-sponsored health benefits. Many UnitedHealthcare Medicare Advantage and Part D plan members also already enjoy a deep discount on hearing aids, with some of them paying no out-of-pocket costs for the devices. The general public also has access to the devices at $749 to $949 per device, which represents a deep discount compared to most competitor prices.“Cost is a significant barrier for millions of Americans suffering from hearing loss, and this new discount will help make hearing aids more accessible and affordable for veterans and their spouses,” Tseng said. Each hearing aid comes with free batteries and ear tubes/wax guards that will last most users six months, as well as a 70-day money‐back guarantee and free programming adjustments. hi HealthInnovations audiologists and hearing specialists offer education, counseling and support over the phone, online and in person.
