Does BlueCross BlueShield Cover Hearing Care Costs?

Ensure you get everything promised to you, and your hearing care becomes your best investment.

In a perfect world, the result of losing your hearing would far outweigh the investment in better hearing. But unfortunately, this isn’t the case with the many people we meet here in Lubbock and Snyder.

However, insurance can help overcome these objections.

Various plans are available that support general health claims, but if you want one that involves hearing care, you may have to be more diligent in your search.

We can help!

Through our combination of over 35 years of audiological experience, we have helped thousands of local people discover hearing healthcare benefits with their insurance provider.

Our in-house specialists are dedicated to knowing each insurance program’s particulars.

This ensures you get everything promised to you, and your hearing care becomes your best investment.

Blue Cross Blue Shield is one of the largest and most known companies. While insurance benefits are based on a patient’s specific circumstances, I’ve done my best to break down what you need to know in this guide.

Most Popular BCBS Programs

To keep things simple, here are the top three policies that offer a wide range of choices to customize your experience and get the help you need.

Blue Elite – Best for Severe Hearing Loss Patients

This is their premium package that allows almost complete freedom in the decision-making process.

If you need hearing aids, the add-on option lets you choose the best device for your issue.

This is a massive advantage for those with more severe hearing challenges. You can seek a perfectly matched hearing aid and have Blue Cross Blue Shield pick up the tab.

Secondly, there are no restrictions on which specialist you see, so you can come see us anytime you have an issue knowing that you’re completely taken care of.

Blue Advantage – Most Popular

This program has many options for hearing aid devices but with a few more restrictions than the Blue Elite policy. Depending on your requirements, you may benefit from this, or it may be too much for you.

We can help you sort through the fine print.

Most people prefer this package primarily because of its affordability. It offers flexibility when choosing your professionals, and you can select a specialist outside the BCBS network but only in certain instances.

We can work with you to determine whether or not this benefits you.

BlueEssential or BlueCare Plus – Most Economical

BlueEssential and BlueCare offer you the choice of doctors, specialists, and facilities from within their own select network.

While this may sound restrictive, the options are plentiful, and specialists are carefully screened to ensure top-quality care and assistance.

These two plans can be tailor-made to your needs, but the BlueEssential plan doesn’t initially cover benefits for hearing aids.

If you have a mild hearing loss, this may be the right choice to take care of your appointments and other hearing care costs.
