Hearing Aids

Phone number forFor Appointments

Hearing aids are medical devices that are dispensed by a licensed professional and the most common treatment for hearing loss. They amplify sounds in a way that’s optimized to your specific hearing loss. They are personalized, connected, and focused on controlling the sounds around you by reducing competing noise using signal processing and multiple microphones. They are designed for you to use all day long, supported by long-lasting batteries and comfortable wear.

Hearing devices are full of features to help you hear better and engage with others. Devices today do more than just help your hearing—they are connecting to your smartphone and providing a better, more practical experience. But, with many hearing devices currently on the market, it can be difficult to know which one is right for you. 

The selection of a hearing device can be an overwhelming process because there are so many features and styles. Our audiologists will guide you. We’ll separate fact from fiction, because here at Mass Eye and Ear, we not only dispense hearing aids, but we study their components, test their claims, and stay current on the latest technological developments. Every hearing device we carry has passed very high standards of fit and function.

Pricing Information

We will help you navigate transparent and flexible payment options, including insurance advocacy. 

NEW in 2020: Unbundled Pricing 

Hearing aid services and devices are now charged separately. This model allows for cost transparency and to charge only for services that you use. The first step is a Communication Needs Assessment, when an audiologist will connect your listening needs with your hearing loss to offer a variety of options to help. Our services continue through fitting the hearing devices, as well as long-term follow-up care and maintenance of the devices.

Service Plans and Follow-Up Care

Whether you buy your hearing device at Mass Eye and Ear or at retail, you may receive follow-up care with Mass Eye and Ear. We offer two different pricing options for services and long-term care:

  • Fee for service: this option allows you to pay as you go for services.
  • Purchase a 1, 2 or 3 year service plan: this option allows you to bundle in services that you may need for your hearing device and ongoing care.

Private health insurance sometimes provide partial coverage for hearing aids. While Medicare does not cover hearing aids, MA Medicaid often does. Some insurance companies require you to use an in-network provider. Call ahead to determine if we are in your network. You may also be able to use your Health Savings or Flexible Spending Accounts (HSA and FSA) for tax-free spending.
