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.
