While most health insurance plans don’t cover hearing aids, you may still be able to reduce the cost of hearing aids using your HSA, HRA, or FSA benefits.
Buying a hearing aid is a significant investment in your health and quality of life, especially when looking for quality. While some health insurance plans provide an allowance for hearing aids, most do not. But the good news is that you may still can purchase your Vibe Air through a few special programs, including HSA, HRA, and FSA benefits.
The first step to find out is check if your health insurance includes a Health Savings Account (HSA), Health Reimbursement Account (HRA), or Flexible Spending Account (FSA)—if it does, you should be able to use those funds to buy not only Vibe Air hearing aids but batteries as well!
Not sure if you have these benefits?
Your best bet is to check with your employer’s HR department. What’s more, the cost of a hearing aid and batteries, repairs, and maintenance is an IRS-approved, qualified medical expense.
Now, let’s take a peek at each of these benefit programs in detail.
