I’m about to spend $7k on a new pair of hearing aids. I am in the “profound” loss range (was born this way) and have finally took the initiative to get the best aids I can purchase.
I just talked to my insurance company (Blue Cross) and they said they pay up to $1k per ear IF the aids are deemed as “medically necessary”. Since my loss range is like 80db (high frequencies) I’d imagine they would be “Medically necessary”…but Blue Cross told me they will have their doctor look at it and determine this.
Well, I’m bracing for the worse. I am trying to get the Otolens (invisible in ear aids) and I just KNOW that BC is gonna say that there are cheaper BTE versions to buy…
Does anyone have any experience with this? Thanks.
