What to Expect When You Visit a Hearing Aid Provider
If you’ve been having trouble hearing lately, missing bits of
conversations, and wondering whether you may benefit
from hearing aid help, it’s time to set up an appointment
with a hearing aid provider. Many types of health insurance
offer coverage for the appointment and subsequent
treatment. When you set up your appointment, the hearing
aid provider may ask you to bring along someone who has a familiar voice.
This person may be required to participate in one of the hearing tests that
show how well you can pick out a familiar voice in the midst of background
noise. When you arrive, you’ll need to fill out some basic paperwork about
your overall health history, including your history with previous hearing
assessments and hearing devices.
After this, your hearing instrument specialist will probably give you a basic
hearing test. You will have to indicate which tones you hear to test your
range and repeat words or phrases to indicate that you can make them out.
After your hearing test, the hearing instrument specialist will diagnose your
problems and give hearing aid advice. If you can benefit from having a
hearing aid or one of the other types of hearing devices, the hearing
instrument specialist may go through a fitting for it. At the end of the
appointment, you’ll be on your way to hearing well again.
