Does Medicare Cover Hearing Aids?

At RetireMed, our client advisors support your health plan needs for life—that’s why we want you to know the ins and outs of what’s covered by Medicare. Our team of client advisors in Dayton and Cincinnati compiled what you should know about hearing aid coverage.  

Does Original Medicare cover hearing aids?

Original Medicare includes Medicare Part A and Part B. Generally, Original Medicare has limited hearing coverage.

Hearing and balance exams are covered if you need to be treated for a medical condition. But Original Medicare will not cover routine hearing exams and will not pay toward hearing aids.

Hearing Coverage on Medicare Advantage Plans

Medicare Advantage (MA) plans must cover benefits offered by Original Medicare and often include extra coverage and benefits. Some MA plans offer coverage for hearing exams and hearing aids. On plans that offer extra hearing coverage, you typically pay a copay for the fitting exam and a copay for each hearing aid. Plans will typically pay up to a certain dollar amount toward the hearing aids each year. You can find these details in your plan's Summary of Benefits document.
