Are Hearing Tests Free?
If you’re noticing hearing loss, you may be considering getting your hearing professionally assessed. The good news is that Beltone makes the process for a hearing assessment easy.
First and foremost: you may have noticed that, at Beltone, we use the term "hearing assessment" to refer to the service we provide that measures your degree of hearing loss. We generally avoid using the term "test" because it can have specific cost and service implications for Medicare and insurance providers, and we don’t want to risk any negative impact on our patients by using potentially problematic language. Our focus is on patients, not definitions!
There are many companies who use the term "free online hearing test" despite the inaccuracy of the word "test" in reference to the online assessment experiences in question.
The hearing assessments provided by Beltone are free—both the online hearing assessment and the in-person hearing assessment conducted by a Beltone hearing care professional. If you are found to have a treatable level of hearing loss following your free in-person appointment, you may choose to pursue treatment and purchase hearing aids.
