Hearing benefits for health plans

Contact UnitedHealthcare Hearing at sales@UHCHearing.com to learn how you can offer hearing benefits with plans designed to deliver value, choice and a positive member experience.

1 in 6 U.S. adults (37.5 million) aged 18 and over report some trouble hearing.1

28.8 million U.S. adults could benefit from using hearing aids.1

Untreated hearing loss is linked to:

  • Depression/isolation
  • Cognitive problems (mental decline)
  • Heart problems, such as high blood pressure and heart disease

When left untreated, hearing loss may contribute to other medical conditions and potentially to the high cost of health care services (e.g. hospitalization). By offering a hearing benefit, both the health plan and members may achieve substantial savings.

By offering hearing benefits with your plan, you may:
