Can You Get Financial Help to Buy Hearing Aids?

Yes, help is available!

First, please note that unfortunately, Medicare doesn’t cover hearing aids, though legislation has been repeatedly introduced to do so. Medicare does pay for cochlear implants if the recipient meets certain requirements.

Most private insurance plans don’t cover hearing aids, though it’s worth checking to see if your insurance will.

In Washington State, Medicaid does cover hearing aids and hearing care for adults and children.

Here are some other ways to get the hearing aids you need.
