In addition, it negotiates the best prices for all treatment protocols, including hearing devices.

    After registering for the plan, a hearing counselor will help you find a provider located near your home or work. You will receive a referral letter outlining the plan benefits, services, and pricing. Contact the provider and follow through with an appointment, examination, and treatment.
