Affordable Hearing Care and Financing Options That Fit Your Budget
Your investment in better hearing is a time-intensive process that, when all is said and done, benefits your quality of life in ways that you may not have experienced in years. You may not hear better overnight, but by retraining your ears and brain to process sounds that it hasn’t heard in years — a process we can help you with at Southern Maine Audiology — your satisfaction with your devices will continue to increase.
Once you’ve acquired your hearing aids, you’ll have access to unlimited follow-up care, batteries for your devices when you need them, and a three-year warranty that protects your hearing system from the wear and tear that heat, humidity, moisture, and oils can cause. And while there’s no getting around the fact that healthcare is a high-ranking expense for many Americans, we do our best at Southern Maine Audiology to help you get the treatment you need with financing options and payments that you can afford. Ask our Patient Care Coordinator for more information about these plans. Southern Maine Audiology also accepts cash, check, and Visa or MasterCard. In addition, we have teamed up with other institutions to provide convenient payment plans for our patients. Available plans are listed below. Our Patient Care Coordinator can explain these options in further detail during your visit.
CareCredit® for Hearing Health

Frequently Asked Questions
Why Do Hearing Aids Cost So Much?
The cost of hearing aids is usually the result of a few things: the quality of sound that the unit produces, the features included that help the user hear better, the quality of the components of the unit, and the custom fitting and follow-up care by the specialist who fits your hearing aids. Although inexpensive hearing aids do exist, they are typically made with low-quality components, are not correctly fit to treat your specific hearing loss, and do not include any professional care by a highly trained provider who will help you get the most out of your investment.
Does Medicare Cover the Cost of Hearing Aids?
Medicare Part B (medical insurance) will cover the diagnostic hearing and balance exams only if your primary care physician orders these tests based on symptoms, conditions, or complaints that would require medical treatment. Medicare does not currently cover regular hearing exams or treatment, including hearing aids and exams for fitting hearing aids.
Hearing Aid Warranty
All of our newly dispensed hearing aids come with a no-risk trial period, a manufacturer’s warranty and loss and damage protection.
