Insurance programs that offer a hearing aid benefit:
- Empire: $1,500 per instrument, per ear, every 4 years
- Excellus: some Federal Employee health Benefit, Wegmans, RIT, Starbucks and TruHearing benefit
- MVP: TruHearing
We are happy to announce that as of January 1, 2016, MVP & Excellus health insurance companies have decided to include special hearing aid discounts for their subscribers. We applaud them for taking this initiative to make hearing aids more affordable to those with hearing impairments. We encourage you to take advantage of this program when you are considering replacing your current hearing aid/s.
The program is offered through a distributor named TruHearing. TruHearing is currently working with select audiology facilities in the upstate NY region. Ontario Hearing Centers is proud to be authorized as one of the few partners chosen by TruHearing.
The process, procedure, and scheduling of appointments required to obtain the discounted rate can be very confusing, therefore we strongly recommend that you contact our office prior to calling the toll free number currently listed with MVP and Excellus. We believe our knowledge of your current hearing aid usage and your specific listening needs will enable us to more efficiently guide you to a simpler method of obtaining new hearing aids.
