Auditory Processing Disorder Financial Responsibilities
The evaluation for auditory processing is a multi-step process. There are some insurance companies that statutorily exclude specific auditory processing billing codes and/or limit the amount of testing they will reimburse within the same day.
If you are combining appointments, please be aware that may result in paying more of the evaluation out of pocket. While we do our best to verify coverage before appointments, if you have questions regarding your specific insurance coverage for evaluations please contact your insurance company prior to the appointment or ask our registration desk for a quote prior to the appointment.
Medicare Coverage Guidelines
Medicare policies DO NOT cover a hearing test when the sole purpose of the test is to purchase a hearing aid or make changes to the hearing aid programs.
Most Medicare supplements follow Medicare guidelines: no hearing aid coverage.

While we make every effort to verify benefits before a patient’s appointment, we are often told by insurance companies that it is not a guarantee of benefits and final decisions regarding coverage may differ at the time the claim is received. The list of insurance companies we are contracted with is subject to change. If your insurance company is not listed above, please call the number on your insurance card to verify that we are a provider in your network.
