I am 38 years old. I have had 2 hearing tests from the time I was in my early twenties until now with the last being 5-8 years ago. Both times, I was told I would be eligible for hearing aids and that my high freq. is just about completely gone. I just accepted as is because I was not ready to wear hearing aids but times have changed and my hearing as perceived by me, my family, and friends is getting worse.
I have an appt. scheduled with my ENT for 1st of August and will go from there. However, anticipating I would benefit from HA’s, I will for sure pursue it.
I have been reading on here and it seems Costco is a very good location to obtain and that your local ENT may be much higher in price. If this assumption holds true for me, my dilemma is that the closest Costco is 1.75 hours away. I live in a rural area and we just do not have one near.
Any comments or thoughts on this? It is worth the drive to me for a several thousand dollar savings. Any reason the cost savings would not be worth it in this case and I really would need to remain local?
FWIW, my insurance will cover up to 2500 for HA’s every 3 years.
