I’m a 76 year old male. I have never worn HA’s. I put my audiogram numbers in my profile. My Aud recommended Oticon OPN S. Her price for the 2 model is $5,600 (for 2 HA’s). My advantage plan will pay only $500. So I looked around for options. (Costco is not an option for me.)
I found Hearing Care Solutions (HCS). Their price for the OPN S 2 is $3,100 (44%/$2500 less). They include the fitting and 1 year of follow-up service and 3 year warranty covering loss, damage and repair.
My Aud is not in the HCS network. So HCS made an appointment for me with a local Aud. When I look at that Aud’s website I don;t see Oticon and the local aud’s company is not on Oticon’s list of providers. The local Aud gets good comments on Yelp etc But can she fit me and adjust the Oticon HA’s properly? I have sent her a copy of my hearing test that was performed last August. My appointment is not until December 3.
Thank you for any comments.
