So I’m a bilateral cochlear implant candidate now. I plan to get both, but for the interim period where I just have the one, how important is it to get a hearing aid that works together with the CI vice just using one of the hearing aids I currently have? Per the surgeon this could just be for a few months assuming things go well with the first CI.
I’m guessing in this event insurance won’t cover the hearing aid under the CI, so I’d need to pay out of pocket. Since Cochlear seems to be who I’m going with, this would be a Resound hearing aid, probably an Enzo Q based on my hearing test yesterday (not in my profile as I don’t have a copy yet; it’s severe to profound now though).
Anyway, appreciate your inputs!
