The hearing industry continues to evolve as consumer demand for hearing aid benefits increase. Today, 88 percent of health plans offer hearing aid benefits to attract and retain enrollees, according to the “Medicare Advantage 2021 Spotlight: First Look.” This provides consumers with the flexibility to select a plan that best fits their health-care needs and allows NationsHearing® to successfully contract with leading managed-care organizations.
This growth in managed care is beneficial for patients and hearing-care professionals alike. It creates an ideal opportunity for participating network providers to gain access to a new segment of patients and generate additional income. By partnering with NationsHearing, hearing care professionals can increase revenue through patient referrals.

For patients, hearing aid benefits make accessing care easier and more affordable. Further, patients with hearing loss, who have a hearing aid benefit through NationsHearing, arrive to their appointment better educated and ready to take action. This accelerates the opportunity to improve health outcomes.
At NationsHearing, we value the vital role hearing care professionals play in impacting patients’ overall quality of life.
