Progressive Hearing in North Miami Chooses to Double State-Mandated Trial Period for Hearing Aids

Share Article

Florida state law mandates a 30-day trial period for hearing aids, but Progressive Hearing is now offering 60 days.

Hearing aids are unique to each individual. Unlike consumer electronics, two users that buy the same hearing aid won't have the same experience. There are two main reasons for this; first, each person's hearing loss profile is different, and second, each person's brain is different. Many people forget or don't realize that hearing involves the ears and the brain. Just delivering a clearer, louder signal to the ear doesn't mean that a brain deprived of sound is ready to process the information. This is why there is an adjustment and learning period for any new hearing aid purchase. Florida state law requires a 30-day trial period for hearing aid purchases, but Progressive Hearing in North Miami, FL has decided to extend this to 60 days. Across 60 days, a patient can truly acclimate to the new hearing aid. The brain can become re-accustomed to receive auditory inputs, and the audiologist can work with the patient to adjust the device settings. 30 days is sometimes too soon to gauge the success of a new hearing instrument. Residents in the North Miami area are encouraged to obtain their next new hearing aid from Progressive Hearing to get a full 60 days to test it out and still have the option of returning it.
