Hearing Aid Benefit

Through Amplifon®, Martin's Point offers hearing aid coverage to keep you connected.

This extra benefit provides coverage for hearing aids and batteries, which are not covered by Original Medicare.

  • Annual allowance toward hearing aid devices from leading manufacturers with average savings of 60% off MSRP (see chart below for allowance amounts by plan)
  • Two years of free hearing aid batteries
  • One year of free follow-up care for hearing aid fittings and evaluations
  • A 3-year warranty on hearing devices with a 60-day, risk-free trial period

Step One: Audiology Exam

The member must have an audiology exam within 6 months prior to purchasing hearing aids. The hearing aid benefit and the audiology benefit are two completely separate benefits.

Audiology exams are covered under the standard Medicare benefit. Please see Medicare-covered hearing services for more information.

Step Two: Call Amplifon

Once the member has had their exam and determines that they need hearing aids, they should call Amplifon at 1-888-669-2167.

Amplifon will work with you to find an Amplifon network provider in your area.

Step Three: Hearing Aid Fitting

Amplifon will help the member schedule an appointment to shop for hearing aids. They will send a referral to the provider that carefully demonstrates what their coverage is. This way, when the member arrives for their appointment, the provider will already know the allowance amount and covered models.

It's important to note that the providers in Amplifon's network for selling hearing aids are not the same as the Martin's Point medical network for providing audiology exams.

Step Four: Claim Submitted by Amplifon

Claims for hearing aids will be submitted directly by Amplifon to Martin’s Point Generations Advantage. Members will be responsible for balances after their benefit allowance has been credited. Hearing aid costs do not contribute to the members out-of-pocket maximum.

Hearings aids must be purchased through an Amplifon provider, otherwise there is no coverage.

Hearing Aid Benefit FAQs

The hearing aids must be purchased through an Amplifon provider, otherwise there is no coverage or reimbursement.
Hearing and audiology exams are a medical benefit that is separate from hearing aids (copays apply). Hearing aid providers typically require an exam within the past 6 months before buying a hearing aid.
You will still need to use an Amplifon provider. After your other health insurance has paid their portion, the provider will bill Martin's Point with the Explanations of Benefits from the primary payer. We will still contribute the same amount as we would have had we been the primary and only payer.
