  • Hearing Devices Can Help Improve Quality of Life

    A recent research study conducted by the Better Hearing Institute revealed that today’s advanced hearing aids are helping the majority of people with hearing loss regain their quality of life and become more socially involved. In the study 2,000 hearing aid users were surveyed from across the United States and it was found that 8 out of 10 hearing aid users are satisfied with the changes in their quality of life specifically caused by their hearing aids.

The study compared patients that had either full insurance coverage, partial insurance coverage or had to cover the entire cost out of pocket (private pay).
