getting hearing aids

November 13th, 2019 at 07:07 pm

I had another hearing test and it was determined it was borderline. So they suggested hearing aids. Because of my insurance covering it 100% I am rushing forward with it before it probably changes January 1st. Typical because who knows what is going to be covered. I am hoping to finish this by the end of the year.

I will admit it's a bit annoying that medical plans always change every year. That you only know what will be that year but next year who knows?

    Good Luck, Living - i've heard that COSTCO is wonderful for purchasing and servicing hearing aids. They seem to be much less expensive. Take care.

    I bet you will love hearing better! My husband probably needs them, but he keeps passing his hearing tests somehow. And what a blessing they are covered.

    Wishing you the best. My mom, I think needs them but she refuses

    Good luck with them, and smart move jumping on the opportunity while your insurance covers them because those babies are not cheap.

    Nope. And perhaps I don't need them 100% full time but coverage now means that I can get used to it. Plus honestly I really need it mostly in social settings is when I notice problems. It's always been that way.

    That's quite normal. As our hearing declines, we have more trouble distinguishing speech from background noise. So in a social setting like a party or a restaurant, it gets harder to "hear" the person speaking to you because it blends in with all of the other noise present in the room.

    I will second the COSTCO recommendation. My son and my ex both got hearing aids there and are pleased.
