2023 Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield Hearing Aid Coverage

Approximately one out of every three Americans between ages 65 and 74 has hearing loss. Nearly half of people over 75 have trouble hearing.3

Original Medicare (Part A and Part B) offers very little in the way of hearing coverage, however.

Although Original Medicare doesn’t cover hearing aids, a Medicare Advantage Plan from Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield (Anthem) could potentially prove beneficial.

Some Anthem Medicare Advantage Plans cover routine hearing care, which may include coverage for some of the costs of hearing aids.

Does Medicare cover hearing aids?

Diagnostic hearing tests and balance exams may be covered by Original Medicare if your doctor deems them medically necessary.

Medicare Part A and Part B, however, don’t cover hearing aids, hearing aid batteries or hearing aid fittings.

You may be able to enroll in a Medicare Advantage (Part C) Plan that includes coverage for hearing aids. Not every Medicare Advantage Plan includes hearing aid coverage, and plans may not be available in all areas.

If a Medicare Advantage Plan covers hearing aids, it might cover some of the costs associated with an ear mold, hearing aid batteries and other equipment. It may also cover certain audiological visits for fitting, adjusting and maintenance of covered hearing aids.

How much do hearing aids cost?

The average price of hearing aids in 2022 can range from $1,000 to $4,000.4 And that’s for each hearing aid.

If you don’t have an insurance plan that covers hearing aids, you will likely have to pay for your hearing aid costs entirely out of pocket.

How do I find an Anthem Medicare Advantage Plan with hearing aid coverage?

By law, every Medicare Advantage Plan must provide all of the same benefits offered by Medicare Part A and Part B. Some plans may offer additional benefits that are not covered by Original Medicare.

These extra benefits may include coverage for things like prescription drugs, dental, vision, and – in some cases – hearing aids. 

Some Anthem Medicare Advantage Plans may offer:

  • Premiums as low as $0 per month.2
  • Leading networks of health care providers, which may include audiologists and hearing aid suppliers.
  • An annual out-of-pocket spending max, which can help limit your Medicare costs.
