We have Anthem BC/BS… It’s a PPO plan with an HRA.
Several phone calls have revealed that they will pay 80% of the base model of what we end up getting… So our understanding is if I go with Oticon Alta2 Pros… They will pay for %80 of the Ria2 model. If I go with Phonak Audeo V90s, they’ll pay 80% of the V30s.
I have called the plan service number of the insurance card, my husband has spoken with HR at his employer, and two different audiologist practices have called on our behalf… All have resulted in the same answer. The HIS I’ve decided to work with is skeptical though.
So, do you think that’s what we’ll actually get? Anyone have experience with Anthem? How’d it go?
My husband is having a horrible time dealing with the fact that we are not really going to know what we’re paying for these things until after the fact. I’m more of the mindset of at least we get something…
I’m about start a 30 day free trial and spend 2 weeks in the Alta2 Pros and two weeks in the Phonak Audeo V90s. Then, if I choose one I like, we start the payment and billing process to purchase.
