Although your audiologist can be a great resource, you will want to keep some tips in mind when shopping for your hearing aid. They include:
- Look for a hearing aid that can adapt to your hearing needs over time since the life of a hearing aid is three to five years.
- Hearing aids cannot restore your hearing to normal or eliminate all background noise, but there is new technology that aims to minimize background noise.
- Ask your audiologist if a hearing aid includes a warranty that covers parts and labor.
- The cost of a hearing aid, professional fees and accessories is a significant expense you should plan for. Speak with your insurance carrier about hearing aid coverage in your policy before your buy.
