Denton, TX (PRWEB) December 16, 2009
Employers, Associations, and groups of ten or more are being alerted to the new “Hearing Aid Benefit” plan being offered by Hearing Haven LLC in Texas. This program allows organizations to offer their members hearing aid coverage. There is no up-front investment to join.
Persons who wish to hear more clearly in certain situations and improve communication challenges by the use of digital hearing aids are able to do so by joining the plan, which allows adding hearing instruments to a benefit package within reach of every group.
Medicare and most traditional insurance companies do not pay for hearing aids, which can cost up to $7000 a set, putting them out of the reach of many consumers. Hearing Haven, LLC believes that by adding the “Hearing Aid Benefit” plan to a group’s benefit package, members of associations and organizations will receive great benefits in an affordable manner.
The plan can be offered in several ways, or customized as needed to fit any need. There is no cost to add the Hearing Aid coverage to a benefit plan, and charges are incurred only by those members receiving digital hearing aids.
Plan C, which is no cost to the employer or group, allows members to receive free hearing evaluations and checkups. If Hearing Instruments would be beneficial and are desired by the person with a hearing loss, they receive a discounted activation fee as a group member, to be fit with hearing aid technology appropriate to their hearing.
Plan B, which is now offered by the City of Rockwall, Texas to their employees, allows the employer or group to pay half of the activation fee, and one half of each monthly subscription, so that the investment is shared equally by the employees and the employer.
Plan A, is for employers, or assisted living and retirement communities, who wish to offer full coverage for hearing aids to their group. They pay the activation fee and 100% of the monthly subscription fee, but only for those participants that actually are fit with hearing aids.
Custom Plans are also available, for groups that want to offer members the benefits of receiving hearing assistance, and have special requirements.
After the group benefit discount, the cost is typically $500 to $1000 for the activation fee, and then $77 or $97 per month. These fees are only for those members who choose to acquire hearing assistance.
In addition to the hearing aid benefit plan, the member would receive free hearing aid batteries, free follow-up visits, and free adjustments. Repairs and a one-time loss and damage coverage are also included, with the length of the warranty determined by the manufacturer. A variety of major manufacturers are being offered.
Every 48 months, under the Hearing Aid Benefit, those who renew their coverage become eligible to receive new hearing aids. The benefit plan is “portable”, and can be maintained by the individual if they change jobs or move.
The group hearing aid benefit plan is administered for Hearing Haven LLC by New Perceptions in Hearing, of Irving Texas.
