It’s open season for current and retired feds. BCBS Basic is shifting to $2500 towards aids every five instead of three years. They have a discount program for aids through something called TruHearing, but I get the impression these are second-tier products. The GEHA program for 2021 will do hearing aids every 3 years, but also seems to have the TruHearing connection.
My questions of those who have used TruHearing:
1: are these in fact downgraded models, just as Costco sells units that are a tad behind top-tier in technology? (For reference, I use Oticon OPNs 1s and have always tried to buy as much technology as I can as a hedge against the risk of hearing declining faster In between subsidized purchase opportunities.)
2: have you been satisfied with the products and service you have received?
