HEARING AID PRICES

We post our prices so you can compare.  In most cases, our prices will be lower, sometimes substantially lower.  

ANSWERS TO FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT HEARING AID BRANDS DO YOU CARRY?   We are not manufacturer-owned or a franchise so we can provide most any brand.  That said, we are primarily using hearing aids manufacturered by Oticon and Phonak because they have products that provide my patients with the best results. We can and do provide other brands (e.g., Starkey). "Lyric" is a product distributed by Phonak, but we do not provide them.  Click here for our rationale.

WHAT IS THE RETURN PRIVILEGE?   Hearing aids are backed by a 100% money-back guarantee within thirty (30) days of the purchase date.  If requested, this 30 day period may be extended.  Just ask.

IS A DOWN PAYMENT REQUIRED?  No.  You do not pay anything until you receive your hearing aid devices.

WHEN IS PAYMENT DUE?  Most patients pay (in full) the day the hearing aids are taken home.  You will find Dr. McHugh and his staff very flexible and patient-oriented in this regard.  If you need time to make payments, we can and will work with you.

ANY HIDDEN COSTS? All costs associated with follow up visits are included.  Assessories such as earmolds, remote controls, bluetooth, TV connectors, recharger units, telephone coils, or other special requests may add to the cost.  This will all be explained before you decide to purchase.  We do not "nickel and dime" our patients.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET IN?  We can usually schedule an initial consult for patients within one week. See "hearing tests" and "ear cleaning" on the home page for information regarding fees.  

 

STYLE REFERENCE

- RITE (receiver in the ear) or RIC (Receiver-in-Canal) - behind-the-ear style with a thin wire.  Normally does not require a custom earmold.

- Micro-canal (MC) or ICC - smallest custom product

- Completely in the Canal (CIC) - very small custom product

- In-the-Canal (ITC) - canal style, somewhat visible

- Half-shell (HS) - semi-larger - easier to handle

- In-the-Ear (ITE) - largest - easiest to handle

- Behind-the-Ear (BTE) - DOES require custom earmolds

 

GENERAL LEVEL OF CIRCUITRY TO COST REFERENCE

Premium:  Represents the most advanced circuitry; most versatile; most features; typically highest patient satisfaction; and highest price 

Advanced: Advanced circuitry; less versatile and less features than premium level; and less expensive than premium

Standard:  Circuitry not as advanced; less versatile than advanced; less features; and less expensive. 

Essential:  Most basic circuitry; less versatile; most affordable

 

 

NOTE ON OUR PRICES AND FEES LISTED

  • Whatever our standard price ...reduce it by 10% and this will be the price YOU pay. **

  • With very few exceptions,  hearing aid fees are non-negotiatiable.   

  • There is NO sales tax on hearing devices in Colorado so the price you see is the price you'll pay. 

  • Since we do NOT participate with Medicare, if you decide to purchase hearing aids, the hearing test fee will be complimentary.  So again, the hearing aid price you see is the price you will pay.

  • Note to out of state individuals:  We know our prices are much lower than most providers in the US.  However, in accordance with Colorado law, we do not and will not provide hearing aids (sales) via the Internet.  That said, if you wish to come to Colorado and visit our office (drive or fly), we will serve you.  It may be worth it!

  • Hearing aid sales in Colorado are controlled by the Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA). We use a standardized contract form provided by DORA that includes your consumer protection details.
