Does Medicare Cover Hearing Aids?

To answer whether or not Medicare covers hearing aids, it’s important to understand the coverage you can get with Medicare. When you first become eligible to enroll, you will enroll in Original Medicare (Part A and B) first. Once enrolled, you can choose to add on other types of coverage, such as Medicare Advantage (Part C). 

It isn’t necessary to enroll in Medicare Advantage, especially since Medicare Advantage is required to provide the same coverage as Original Medicare. However, it is an important decision to make as Medicare Advantage plans may also offer additional coverage and can be tailored to meet your specific needs.

Original Medicare

Original Medicare provides a basic level of coverage. Individuals don’t have many choices about what their coverage includes, but it typically covers inpatient and outpatient services. Original Medicare doesn’t offer dental, vision, or hearing coverage. This means that Original Medicare does not cover hearing aids. If you are enrolled in an Original Medicare policy, you’ll need to pay for your hearing aids out-of-pocket.

Medicare Advantage

Medicare Advantage plans are sold through private insurance companies. If you contact us today, we can help you compare your Medicare Advantage options with various insurance companies to help you decide which plan is right for your situation. These companies provide a wide range of options so you can select the policy that makes the most sense for you.

Unlike Original Medicare, some Medicare Advantage plans do provide hearing coverage. Depending on your policy, a portion of your hearing aids could be covered. If you’re considering using dental, vision, or hearing services, enrolling in Medicare Advantage might be the best solution.
