As with any major medical insurance, it is important to read the fine print and understand what is considered in-network and out-of-network. Our experienced insurance agents will be more than happy to discuss what is covered with a specific 2019 Medicare Advantage plan. You do not want to go to a hearing specialist to find out that your hearing exam and hearing aid is not covered by your insurance.
Rather than allowing this to happen, we strongly urge you to contact an insurance professional to verify your hearing exam and hearing aid will be covered by your 2019 Medicare Advantage (Plan C) Plan. There is no reason to pay money out of pocket when you could have a plan that covers these costs. Whether you live in Raleigh, Wilmington, Charlotte or Asheville, we have agents that can answer your Medicare Advantage questions.
