Both of my parents need hearing aids and luckily their insurance (Aetna) will cover a portion of the cost.
If we purchase hearing aids this year, they will be reimbursed $1500 per person no matter where they go. We were looking at Costco’s Kirkland brand that is $1500 for a pair.
If we wait a couple of months, next year the benefit changes to $2000 per ear, but hearing aids have to be purchased through Hearing Care Solutions. It looks like they offer several brands, but when I contacted them they did not have any pricing information they could send me for next year’s aids.
Since the hearing aid benefit is yearly, we could actually get the Kirkland hearing aids now, and then get something different from HCS next year if we wanted.
Does anyone here have an opinion about HCS and what the cost of their hearing aids would be? Should we stick with the plan of getting the Kirkland models this year?
