“I know I have a hearing benefit through Amplifon Hearing Health Care, but I'm not sure where to start. How can I make the most of my hearing benefit?”
Dr. Meyer's Answer:
If you have a hearing benefit through Amplifon Hearing Health Care, you have access to so much more than just hearing aids. But if you've never been to a hearing care provider or had hearing aids in the past, you may not know how to take advantage of the additional value available to you. Here’s five things you can do you make the most of your hearing benefit.
1. Ask questions
If you're not sure if you have a hearing benefit through Amplifon, don’t know where the nearest hearing care provider is, or have questions about the program, an Amplifon Patient Care Advocate will be there for you every step of the way to answer questions and point you in the right direction to get the best care for your hearing. You can get in contact with a Patient Care Advocate by calling 888-402-1397 or by using our online chat at www.amplifonusa.com.
2. Find the right fit
Finding the right hearing aids can sometimes be like buying a new car. You have to decide which brand and model will meet your needs and which features you ‘can’t live without.’ Similarly, your hearing care provider will work with you to select a hearing aid that suits both your lifestyle and degree of hearing loss. With your Amplifon benefit, you can also try your hearing aids risk-free for 60-days. If for any reason you find that your hearing aids just aren’t the perfect match, you can return them with no return or restocking fees.
3. Take advantage of follow-up care
Do you adjust your speakers to find the right amount of treble, bass, and balance? Maybe you set up your smartphone so all your favorite apps are at your fingertips. Just like any other piece of technology, hearing aids need to be adjusted in order to feel comfortable. It's important that you work with your provider to get your hearing aids adjusted properly, which is why I'm happy to say that Amplifon offers one-year of adjustments, cleanings, and other services at no additional cost to you.4. Get batteries sent directly to you
The average lifespan of a hearing aid battery is between 3 and 7 days, depending on the size of the battery your hearing aids take. A short lifespan means a lot of trips to the store, and a lot of money spent on batteries. With your Amplifon benefit, you can get two years of free batteries* mailed to your doorstep, meaning less trips to the store and more money in your pocket. If you decide to purchase hearing aids with rechargeable batteries, Amplifon will provide you with a free standard charger* to keep your hearing aids powered while you're on the go or at home.5. Know you're covered
Finally, hearing aids are an investment, both financially and for your quality of life. I've had many frantic calls and appointments with patients who have lost or damaged their hearing aids. I've even heard 'the dog ate my hearing aid.' Accidents happen, but with your Amplifon benefit, you can rest easy knowing that you’re covered by a three-year warranty* for loss, damage, or repairs.
