Your Excellus BlueCross BlueShield hearing aid benefit provides you with high-quality hearing aids and local professional care at a fraction of the cost.
Hearing Aid Coverage
Most health plans—including traditional Medicare—don’t offer a hearing aid benefit, leaving you to pay $3,000–$4,000 per hearing aid on the retail market.
Through our partnership with TruHearing®, you have access to their network of audiologists and hearing aid providers, plus coverage for up to two hearing aids per year (provided by an in-network TruHearing provider).
