Use Health Benefits and FSA Funds to Your Advantage
Hearing insurance is offered to about 49 percent of the workforce, and in some instances can provide some relief in terms of cost.
These benefits typically run dry at the end of the year if they aren’t used, so be sure to contact your insurer for more information about your specific policy. If Allegany Hearing & Balance Center is a preferred provider with your insurance company, we will directly bill your insurance for payment.
Your employer may also offer an FSA or HSA (flexible spending account or health spending account) that pulls money from your paycheck pre-tax and sets it aside for future medical expenses. In this case, the costs would still come out of your pocket, but it would be untaxed. If you’ve already used your FSA funds for the year, please consider what your hearing needs will be next year when you sit down with your company’s benefits coordinator and decide how much of your paycheck you’d like to reserve tax-free.
State Employees and Retirees in the State of Maryland, Garrett County employees, as well as FEP employees and retirees have a hearing aid benefit.
We also work with Workers Compensation in Maryland and surrounding states.
