When a member has hearing aid coverage, we reimburse the provider’s charge up to the member’s maximum benefit.

Please remember to review the member’s coverage with them first and have them sign a non-covered service waiver if the hearing aid is not covered.

Getting details about your claim payment

Once the claim processes according to the member’s benefits, you’ll receive a Provider Detail Advisory on Payspan that outlines your reimbursement and any amount the member may owe.
