Navigating a system like Medicaid can be challenging, especially people with hearing loss. A new resource is now available to help Texas Medicaid recipients understand their benefits and successfully be fit with hearing aids in three easy steps., a service provided by Hearing Aid Express, aims to walk people through the maze of being fit with Medicaid hearing aids in a simple, easy-to-understand way. The site also helps identify those who might be committing Medicaid fraud and what to do about it.

The process isn't complicated. In fact, it's as easy as 1-2-3.

1. Schedule an appointment at a Hearing Aid Express office. Provide a current Medicaid card and a photo ID upon check in. A Specialist will conduct 100% free hearing test to determine the degree of your hearing loss and if an eligible hearing loss is found and suggest the appropriate device.

2. Next, visit a doctor who will examine your ears and determine if there is a medical reason why you should not be fit with hearing instruments. The doctor will complete a medical release form that can be downloaded from the site.

3. Bring the completed medical release to any Hearing Aid Express office and to be fit with hearing aids.

Following a significant change in Medicaid benefits for the hearing impaired, eligible residents can now get a pair of quality hearing aids (average value of $4800) at no cost to them every five years. Prior to Dec. 2008 it was only one aid every six years.

Many might not be aware how quickly hearing aid technology has evolved in recent years. Today’s hearing instruments are tiny and are equipped with state-of-the-art features that offer quality performance.

Since hearing has a tremendous impact on lifestyle, it is important for everyone to get their hearing tested if they believe to have a hearing loss. Hearing Aid Express, a leading provider of hearing aids in Texas, is striving to share information and fit area Medicaid recipients with quality hearing instruments.
