楼主 (北美华人网)
求助姐妹们。我小时候用抗生素导致听力不好,想买便宜的助听器。哪里有公益组织可以提供,谢谢。还有最近我去诊所交钱看病。诊所医生可能会帮我转诊到专科医生那里。我想知道去了专科医生那里我需要再次支付专科医生的费用吗?谢谢

当然要付专科医生的钱了,还是去看吧,助听器的使用也是要个人调整的,你的医生都推荐你去看专科了,不要乱用为好。

助听器对有保险的人也不便宜。虽然我感觉这么说比较冒犯,但我还是想表达一下: 你本人或家人不工作,银行账户里没有钱吗?又或,你是有资格免费看病的穷人?不然,看病花钱,购物花钱,这是最基本的常识,“领”助听器,这种说法,真的很让人开眼啊。美国国力的下降,就是有太多只想获得免费的蛀虫不断侵蚀而造成的。

我也需要同样信息。 boderline deaf, 刚好在保险不给助听器的边上,有背景噪音就听不清楚,限制工作(听不清,得靠近别人,别人会觉得我wierd,老板觉得我performance不好)。
大家慢慢都会变老。我年轻气盛时对这些也是不屑一顾的。

低收入家庭可以买obamacare, 价钱很低。
如果医生给开了,保险会报销一大部分吧。

你有保险吗? 如果低收入还可以申请政府的,如果没有保险就直接联系耳鼻喉科医生就说没保险问多少钱,医生对无保险的会有优惠

保险有时候没用。我的保险刚好不给cover,但我工作的确需要。自费对低收入的人是不容易。当初,这对我就是零花钱。现在账号里只有两三百块钱,离下个月收入还有十天。冰箱坏了,车库门打不开了,房屋保险虽然保,但每次来要收$100.孩子天天从学校接了就在车里放声大哭,要买她想要的吃的。。。

你好,你在哪个州?一般聋人有他们自己的社区。政府有专门给聋人提供帮助的机构,你最好问一下身边社工或者询问州政府。我知道麻州有帮助低收入听力障碍人士找工作的服务,并且提供助听器,收入比较低这些服务都是免费的。

Menu Medicare Annual Enrollment 2022: Everything You Need to Know Get Tips & Info How to Get Free Hearing Aids for Seniors Although 27 million Americans over the age of 50 have hearing loss, only 14 percent use a hearing aid.1 There are many reasons why seniors may let their hearing loss go untreated — a big one being sticker shock. The average cost of one hearing aid hovers around $2,300, and if you need to purchase two of them, it can definitely be a blow to your budget. Eargo Hearing Aids If you're living on a fixed income, or simply want a great deal on hearing aids, there are some resources to check out. Getting free or reduced-cost hearing aids is possible, but we have to admit it isn't always easy. We've done some digging on discounts, resources, and insurance in hopes of helping seniors save money on a hearing aid purchase or possibly get free hearing aids altogether! Can You Get Free Hearing Aids? You can follow several avenues to save big bucks on hearing aids. Here is a quick overview of your options, then we'll dive into the details to see if you qualify. The Veterans Health Administration Medicaid Vocational rehab National and state foundations Insurance and Medicare Watch the video below for the inside scoop on how to get free or reduced-cost hearing aids. Audiologist Brad Ingrao chats with Jeff Hoyt, our editor-in-chief, about everything you need to know:
Can You Get Free Hearing Aids From the Veterans Health Administration (the VA)? Hearing loss is the most common service-related injury for U.S. veterans.2 If you were in the service and are experiencing hearing loss in your golden years, the Veterans Health Administration, which is part of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), may be able to give you free hearing aids, or at least a significant discount on them. How to Qualify for VA Healthcare To get hearing aids from the VA, you'll need to apply for healthcare coverage through the Veterans Health Administration (VHA). This arm of the VA addresses current healthcare needs; it does not establish service connection for any injuries or disabilities you may have incurred during your service. You can apply online or over the phone. You may also be able to establish eligibility at a local VA Medical Center or Community-Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC). You'll need your DD-214 and health insurance cards. The VA will also do a “means test,” so having a few years of tax returns handy can speed up the process. Once you are deemed eligible for general VA healthcare, you are automatically eligible for audiology care, including hearing evaluations, hearing aids, assistive hearing technologies, and even cochlear implants if you need them. The VHA also provides comprehensive evaluation and treatment for tinnitus. Oticon Rechargeable Base Station If your income is above a certain level, you may be required to pay about $100 in copayments for the evaluation and fitting, but the cost of the devices themselves are fully covered if you are eligible. Batteries, consumable supplies like wax guards, and follow-up care are also provided. If you are eligible but already bought hearing aids elsewhere, you can register them with the VA and then get these supplies at no cost. VA-issued hearing aids are all “premium” level from the “big six” (OticonPhonakReSoundSigniaStarkey, and Widex) and their immediate subsidiaries (Unitron, Rexton, etc.). The VA contract also covers accessories like Bluetooth streamers, advanced remote microphones, and even specialized alerting systems that ensure you hear important alerts like smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. One of Phonak’s BTE hearing aid styles We recommend finding your nearest VA facility to discuss hearing aid benefits with a local representative in person or over the phone. They can help you navigate finding treatment and exploring possible coverage for your hearing loss. If you feel your hearing loss is due to your military service, you will need to open a claim with the Veterans Benefits Administration. If you are eligible for VHA healthcare, you do not need a service connection for hearing loss or tinnitus to get hearing aids from the VA. Does Medicaid Pay for Hearing Aids? In the U.S., Medicaid hearing aid coverage varies from state to state. Some states may cover hearing assessments and maintenance, while other states cover the entire device. Unfortunately, some states don't offer any Medicaid coverage for hearing services and devices, leaving some low-income seniors to pay out of pocket. To find out what you qualify for, we recommend contacting your state's Medicaid office to learn more. Also, the Hearing Loss Association of America provides a comprehensive list of what each state covers. If you discover that hearing aids aren't covered by Medicaid in your state, or you're not eligible for Medicaid, no reason to lose hope. You may be able to take advantage of one of the other resources below! Will Vocational Rehabilitation Pay for Hearing Aids? Vocational rehabilitation helps people who have disabilities get or keep a job. If you are an older adult who has yet to retire and need hearing aids to perform your job duties or obtain employment, you may be able to receive a hearing aid through your state's vocational rehabilitation program. Seniors can see if their state offers hearing aid coverage and if they qualify for vocational rehabilitation services by contacting their state office. Widex Evoke Hearing Aids National and State Resources for Free Hearing Aids Many agencies and foundations at the national and state levels provide assistance to seniors in purchasing hearing aids. For seniors seeking financial hearing aid assistance, it is just a matter of contacting these foundations and filling out any necessary applications to see if you qualify for help. It can take some time, but if it saves you thousands of dollars, we think it is worth it! For a list of financial assistance options, visit HearingLoss.org. You may also find an option through the list provided by the Hearing Aid Project at the state or national level. Your local Area Agency on Aging (AAA) may also be able to direct you to local resources. Starkey Hearing Aids Lineup Hearing Aid Foundations May Offer Assistance Some major hearing aid companies, like Miracle-Ear and Starkey, have established foundations to provide hearing aids to people who need them but may not be able to afford them. You can visit the Miracle-Ear Foundation and Starkey Hearing Foundation websites to fill out an application and see if you qualify for assistance from them. Does Insurance Cover Hearing Aids? Private Insurance Most private insurance plans cover hearing assessments and hearing aid fittings, but it is rare for health insurance to completely cover hearing aids. You may have a copay or have to pay completely out of pocket for the hearing devices. Some plans may contract with a certain hearing aid provider to get you a discounted price, so you might get a better deal on a high-quality hearing aid by using the provider your insurance plan has contracted with. Plans vary greatly, so it is important to call your provider and make sure you know the details of your plan. Here are some important questions we suggest you ask when speaking with a representative: What is my hearing aid benefit? Are the benefits limited to a specific model or brand of hearing aid? Do I have to use a certain in-network provider? Also, ask for your benefits to be sent to you in writing via mail or email. This will make sure you know exactly what you have coverage for and hold your insurance provider accountable. Medicare Advantage Some Medicare Advantage plans provide hearing aid coverage, while others don't. Plans vary depending on your state and insurance company. The best course of action is to call your Medicare Advantage representative and inquire about the specifics of your plan and the hearing services it covers. Health Savings Plans If you have exhausted other resources and end up having to pay for your hearing aids out of pocket, don't forget to use your health savings plan if you have one! Since hearing aids are medical devices, you can use a health savings plan for the purchase. You can use the following health savings plans to purchase hearing aids: Flexible spending account (FSA) Health savings account (HSA) Health reimbursement account (HRA) Citations Johns Hopkins Medicine. (2021). The Hidden Risks of Hearing Loss. U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs. (2021). .
