You may be concerned about how hearing aids will work. Everyone knows someone who spent thousands on hearing aids only to leave them in a drawer and never wear them. We never want this to happen at Hearing and Audiology Services. You will always have a trial period at Hearing and Audiology Services.
Hearing aids have traditionally been provided in a bundled model. This means that the hearing aids themselves and all services involved in the delivery, fitting and servicing for the life of the hearing aids are paid for at the time of purchase. When you choose this model you pay for everything related to the hearing aids at the time of purchase and are not charged for future appointments or services.
We use this model at Hearing and Audiology Services, but we also offer our patients a choice. We also offer an unbundled model. In this model the cost of the hearing aids is separated from the services related to the fitting and servicing of the hearing aids. By doing this patients are able to pay less for hearing aids and pay for services as needed. It is important to know that some services are required at the time of fitting.
