“Patients must be provided affordable treatment options when investing in the medical treatment of hearing loss.”
– Dr. Keith N. Darrow
The medical treatment of hearing loss and the associated cognitive needs can be a significant financial investment for many older adults. Unfortunately, in today’s health care system where coverage for many medical procedures and products are steadily decreasing, the cost of covering treatment of hearing loss continues to be ignored by most.
When individuals living with untreated, or undertreated hearing loss are surveyed, ‘price’ is the most common reason for patients rejecting the recommendation for treatment. Perhaps the reason so many people, and insurance companies have refused to pay for treatment is the longstanding history of traditional amplifying hearing aids that provided very limited success and abysmal patient satisfaction. But everything has changed.
The technology we use to treat hearing loss (NeuroTechnology™) and the way patients afford treatment (TreatmentFi™) allow more patients to come out from the isolating and brain-depriving effects of living with untreated, and undertreated hearing loss.
After years of many sleepless nights and way too much time dealing with lawyers and bankers, we have developed a program (TreatmentFi™) which provides access to affordable hearing health care for the masses, without compromise. In the past, if a patient had limited financial resources, or just wanted to save a few bucks, they were forced to reduce the effectiveness of treatment with traditional hearing aids by compromising on features and capabilities; this is no longer an issue for our patients.
TreatmentFi™ in Worcester, MA, a simplified patient financing program is approved for use in all 50 states. In addition to removing the barrier for new patients to invest in proper hearing health care, this program also tackles another major issue: patients with traditional hearing aids that are unable to afford a large down payment to upgrade to treatment with NeuroTechnology™. TreatmentFi™ offers unlimited no-out-of-pocket cost changes to technology every 3.5 to 4 years based on changes to the patient’s hearing and cognitive needs.
This TreatmentFi™ program is all-inclusive and ensures that each patient always has what is best to treat his/her hearing loss and associated cognitive needs. With TreatmentFi™, patients have access to low-cost monthly treatment plans that provide significant benefits including full warranty coverage on treatment technology (and one-time loss coverage and unlimited repair coverage), complete access to all required supplies, batteries and service appointments and most importantly no-cost automatic upgrades to new treatment technology every 3.5 to 4 years.
The two undeniable facts of hearing loss treatment are: 1) a patient’s hearing loss and associated cognitive needs will change over time and 2) technology used to treat hearing loss will improve. With the TreatmentFi™ program, treating patients is always the top priority!
The benefits of treating hearing loss with the exclusive TreatmentFi process is exceptional and unlike any other treatment plans available to patients. Each patient who finances treatment with TreatmentFi™ can expect the following benefits:
- a pair of adaptive NeuroTechnology™ designed to address the cognitive aspects of hearing loss
- lifetime hearing loss coverage with affordable fixed monthly treatment plan costs
- lifetime warranty (including a 1- time loss)
- automatic technology upgrades every 48 months (or less)
- access to discounted technology accessories including rechargeable batteries, smartphone and TV adaptor
- all office visits included
- hearing technology supplies included: batteries, cleaning accessories,
The standard cost of TreatmentFi in Worcester, MA, can be customized depending on both hearing loss and associated cognitive needs, insurance benefits and financial situation.
The medical treatment of hearing loss is associated with a number of physical and cognitive benefits including:
- improvements in quality of life
- enhancements in cognitive function, memory recall and attention
- and may even reduce the risk of developing cognitive decline and Dementia.
Recent reports indicate that the treatment of hearing loss may even slow the progression of Dementia. Thus, it is our obligation to our patients to make treatment more affordable and accessible, and TreatmentFi™ in Worcester, MA, helps to solve this problem and get more people to start treating their hearing loss today.
