This is not a promise of benefits, as hearing aid benefits vary greatly between insurance plans and groups within a plan. You can call the customer service number on the back of your insurance card to get specific benefits.

Please review and complete all patient forms prior to your appointment. Remember to have your physician sign the Physician’s Referral Form.
