Healthy hearing is an important part of overall well-being. That’s why the Plan covers hearing care—including exams and hearing aids—for you and your covered dependents, when you use an AudioNet America network provider.
Hearing care services are administered by AudioNet America. You must use an AudioNet provider to receive a plan benefit. Services are covered only when you call AudioNet and receive pre-authorization for care.
The Plan will pay for a hearing aid for each ear once every 36 months for enrolled adults and once every 12 months for enrolled children under age 19. No deductible applies.
Benefits include a 36-month supply of batteries for your hearing aid(s). One pack of eight batteries (per ear) will be provided when you receive your hearing aids; thereafter, AudioNet will mail replacement batteries directly to your home. Batteries are only sent to you if you use an AudioNet provider for your hearing aids.

- Call AudioNet America at 855-800-7147 to find a participating provider.
