Medicare and Taking Advantage of Your Hearing Coverage

advantages-of-hearing-coverage

As we age, it is common for our hearing to decline. The National Institute on Aging reports that 1 in 3 people between 65 and 74 have hearing loss. That’s why it is important to take advantage of the care offered by your Medicare plan to keep your hearing at its best.

Just because you can still hear doesn’t mean you should avoid going to the doctor for a hearing test at least once per year. Loss of hearing can affect your daily interactions, quality of life, and even your balance.

Signs of hearing loss

Oftentimes, loss of hearing doesn’t happen overnight. If you are not getting a routine hearing test, you may not even realize that you could be in need of hearing aids. Some signs of hearing loss include:

  • Frequently asking people to repeat themselves
  • Needing to turn up the volume on your TV
  • Not hearing your phone notifications or ringing
  • Trouble hearing due to background noise
  • Difficulty hearing a whisper
  • Muffled hearing of speech or sounds around you

If you are noticing signs of hearing deterioration, seeing your physician or hearing specialist can help you find a solution to improve the quality of your daily life. This could include getting fitted for hearing aids or taking preventative measures to avoid future hearing loss. Even if you are not noticing any loss of hearing, it is still recommended to get your ears tested at least once per year.

Hearing care when you have hearing aids

If you currently have hearing aids, seeing your physician regularly is essential. Much like your eyes after getting glasses, your level of hearing can change after getting hearing aids. Keeping up with regular hearing appointments can help you fine tune your hearing aids, upgrade devices and screen for future decline.

Medicare and hearing coverage

Medicare Parts A and B (Original Medicare) do not cover routine hearing tests or hearing aids. Those who are enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan can benefit from this coverage. Instead of paying for all your hearing care out of pocket, a Medicare Advantage plan may assist with the costs and even pay entirely for some appointments and care.

If you’re already enrolled in a Medicare Advantage Plan, make sure you’re taking advantage of your hearing benefits and getting all the care you deserve.
