A free, online resource from the American Cochlear Implant Alliance includes information on insurance coverage for cochlear implants (CIs), including employer plans, Medicare and Medicaid, Social Security disability eligibility (for those under 65), and other CI coverage resources that may be helpful.
The new Insurance Resource is designed to help clinicians, educators, early interventionists and physicians working with children or adults with hearing loss, as well as consumers and families thinking of pursuing CIs. It addresses traditional insurance as well as less-familiar funding sources, such as Social Security disability and social service organizations, and offers suggestions on how to overcome coverage challenges for certain aspects of CI intervention, such as rehabilitation or equipment upgrades.
ACI Alliance is a nonprofit organization—with members representing medicine, audiology, speech-language pathology, education, parents and consumers—dedicated to improving CI access through research, advocacy and awareness.
