Hearing aids are generally not covered by health insurance
companies, although some do.
Medicare does not cover hearing aids for adults; however,
diagnostic evaluations for hearing aids are covered
if they are ordered by a physician for the purpose of assisting the physician in developing a treatment plan. Since Medicare has declared the BAHA a prosthetic device and not a hearing aid,
Medicare may cover the BAHA if other coverage policies are met.
For eligible children and young adults ages 21 and under,
Medicaid will pay for the diagnosis and treatment of hearing loss, including hearing aids, under the Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnostic, and Treatment (EPSDT) service. Also, children may be covered by their state's early intervention program or State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP).
