12 Jun Hearing Aid Prices – How much do they cost?
The price of hearing aids is always a question that comes up in our clinics. Indeed hearing aids are a significant investment in yourself and can be considered expensive. They are packed with technological capabilities that will transform your ability to communicate, but it’s often hard to reconcile those outcomes with such a tiny, almost simple-looking device. On average folks can expect to pay hearing aid prices between $1,800 and $2,200 per ear for a good quality, robust unit that comes with on-going audiology support, full coverage warranty and helpful accessories to connect with your cellphones and televisions.
In our practice we have seen how people shy away from this expense, not understanding the consequences of ignoring their hearing loss. Left untreated, hearing loss leads to emotional and social consequences including isolation, depression, safety issues, mobility limitations and reduced income and employment opportunities. For some people living with hearing loss is an affordability issue, meaning folks do not treat their hearing loss because they feel they simply cannot afford it.
At Hearing Institute Atlantic we encourage people to not let the price of hearing aids be the reason they do not seek a test, or a diagnoses or help. We educate the public on the importance of having your hearing tested to measure hearing levels, confirm the type of hearing loss (if present) and understand what options are recommended and what is available to support better hearing health. In some cases, private health plans pay a portion, or agencies like Veterans Affairs Canada provide hearing support to those that have served. If you’ve experienced hearing loss due to noise exposure at work, the Workers Compensation Boards often provide coverage for you. For our part at Hearing Institute Atlantic we offer payment plans and in-house financing, with no interest, to help make the costs more affordable to our clients.
With any decision regarding our health and wellbeing, trust is an important ingredient, and one that we at Hearing Institute Atlantic take very seriously.
