Costs

Hearing better is an investment, both emotionally and financially. Many patients ask why amplification or hearing aids “cost so much”. It is important to understand that hearing aids are not mass produced, like computers, and are often custom made. This increases production costs significantly. In addition, the manufacturers fit at our clinic invest millions of dollars in research and development in order to bring new technologies to market. Finally, and most importantly, when you choose to pursue treatment, you are paying not only for your hearing aids, you are paying for us!

At Hoover Hearing Clinic, we invest an average of five direct contact hours toward your success during the first year of our relationship. Audiologists know that the most important consideration in hearing aid selection is not the hearing aid itself; rather, it is the skill and knowledge of the audiologist fitting the hearing aid. Our responsibility is to ensure that a suitable hearing aid system is selected and to provide an understandable explanation of its merits and limitations. Our Hearing Healthcare Plan includes the following for the first three years: hearing aid delivery and orientation; follow up visits; complimentary hearing aid check and cleans every 4-6 months; complimentary adjustments; three year manufacturer repair warranty; two or three year manufacturer loss or damage warranty; and supply of batteries, as needed, for 3 years. When you consider the cost of hearing aids divided by several years of daily use, it typically equates to the price of a soft drink per day to hear well!

Unfortunately, many patients make price the priority when buying hearing aids, which typically leads to patient dissatisfaction with the hearing aids being placed in a drawer, never to be worn. Statistics show that those who purchase inexpensive hearing aids replace them with more appropriate and effective devices within two years, while those who initially invest in quality hearing aids replace them every five years!
