What do hearing
aids cost?

You can buy hearing aids over-the-counter online or at local pharmacies and big box stores, but these devices only correct mild to moderate hearing loss and often lack the fit and features you need.

The safer bet is to buy from a hearing care professional, who will first accurately measure your hearing loss and ear health. Then, this provider will recommend the right prescription hearing aids that work for your hearing loss, fit the device to your ear, and help you with any adjustments. When you buy from one of our providers, you get comprehensive care and follow-up visits for the life of the device—and the comfort of knowing we are always here for you.

A pair of hearing aids cost about $5.25 per day over 4 years, which is approximately the price of a daily latte.
