Benefits of hearing aids for kids, seniors and adults

skyline

Around 400,000 people in Colorado have hearing loss, and 1 in 3 people know someone who is deaf or hard of hearing, according to the Colorado Commission for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (CCDHH).

Many individuals with hearing loss, whether it’s due to aging, exposure to loud noises or disease, get improved hearing from hearing aids in Denver. Hearing aids are available for all degrees of hearing loss, mild to profound, and for people of all ages.

The benefits of hearing aids for kids, seniors and adults in Denver include:

  • Hearing sounds you previously couldn’t hear
  • Hearing sounds/speech more clearly
  • Easier communication with family and friends
  • Better hearing in loud situations
  • Improved physical and mental health
  • Greater safety and independence
  • Relief from tinnitus symptoms

What types of hearing aids are available in Denver?

Most hearing aids have a microphone that picks up sound, an amplifier that makes the sound louder and a receiver that sends sound to the ear canal. Devices on the market today are digital and battery-powered and come in different styles.

Hearing aid styles Description Pros Cons Cost
Behind the ear (BTE) Sits behind the ear, with a tube connecting to an earmold or earpiece Appropriate for all degrees of hearing loss; long battery life; good for children Most visible type of hearing aid $1,500 - $2,800
Mini BTE Smaller version of BTE with a thinner tube; variations include open fit, receiver in canal, receiver in the ear More discreet than BTE; less plugged-up sensation in ear Earwax can clog speaker $1,700 - $3,000
In the ear (ITE) Custom-fit in outer part of ear Easy to handle; available with lots of features Wind noise; earwax can clog speaker $1,500 - $2,800
In the canal (ITC) Custom-fit partly in ear canal Second-most discreet type of aid; more features than CIC Smaller battery, fewer features than ITE $1,700 - $2,900
Completely in the canal (CIC) Custom-fit entirely in ear canal Almost invisible; high sound quality Low number of features; most difficult to handle $1,700 - $3,000

How to choose a hearing aid in Denver

When choosing a hearing aid in Denver, consider:

  • Recommendations from a hearing care professional
  • Style
  • Fit and comfort
  • Sound quality
  • Included services, like annual exams, adjustments, cleanings
  • Warranty coverage and length
  • Cost

Also, think about which features are important to you. Hearing aid technology has advanced significantly in recent years. Features include:

  • Feedback suppression
  • Noise/wind reduction
  • Telecoil
  • Directional microphones
  • Rechargeable batteries
  • Multiple channels
  • Wireless connectivity
  • Remote control
  • Direct audio input
  • Binaural processing
  • Data logging
  • Learning features

Getting a hearing aid test and fitting

During a hearing aid test and fitting, a physician, audiologist or other hearing care professional will determine your type of hearing loss, measure your degree of hearing loss and decide if you are a candidate for a hearing aid.

Once you’ve chosen a hearing aid and it’s ready, your hearing care professional will program the device and show you how to use it.

Here are some questions to ask during your hearing test and fitting:

  • What type/degree of hearing loss do I have?
  • Do you recommend wearing one or two hearing aids?
  • What manufacturer/model do you recommend and why?
  • What features do you recommend based on my preferences and lifestyle?
  • How long is the warranty and what does it cover?
  • How long is my trial period? How much of a refund will I receive if I’m not satisfied?
  • How long will it take to adjust to my new hearing aid?
  • Whom do I contact if there is a problem?

Your hearing care professional should schedule an appointment to follow up with your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your hearing aid.

How much do hearing aids cost in Denver?

Hearing aids in Denver cost $1,000 - $4,000 each. The cost usually includes testing and fitting, a warranty lasting from one to three years and services including annual hearing exams, cleanings, adjustments and checkups.

Private insurance plans in Colorado generally don’t cover hearing aids for adults, but the state requires insurance policies to cover hearing aids for children under 18 who have hearing loss verified by a physician or audiologist.

Many hearing aids in Denver are available for purchase with financing options. Veterans can receive hearing aids through the Department of Veterans Affairs.

For information about hearing aid financial assistance, read the “Hearing Aid Resources” guide from the CCDHH. You can also contact the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders Information Clearinghouse.

Does Medicare cover hearing aids?

Original Medicare doesn’t cover hearing aids or hearing exams. If you have a Medicare Advantage (Part C) plan, ask your insurance company if it includes hearing benefits.

Health First Colorado, Colorado’s Medicaid program, covers hearing aids for beneficiaries age 20 and under.
