Insurance Coverage

Chears is a provider for many insurance companies that sometimes cover hearing aids. Please call us to see if we are in network with your plan and we can check your benefits. You also should check your benefits. Although we take Medicare, which does not cover hearing aids it will cover a yearly hearing test with an order from your physician. Health Partners and Medica often provides some hearing aid coverage as does Aetna and BCBS. Medicaid Minnesota covers hearing aids and all services. We no longer take Medicaid or Medicaid type insurances. United Health care also has coverage but usually refers to a contract plan—see below. Stay tuned as more insurances are helping out. The Veterans Administration also sends some patients to us!


Chears has many contracts that provide discount hearing aids. We will refer you to the contract if it is possible. Such plans are EPIC, HearUSA for AARP, TruHearing, and Amplifon.
