FAQs

If you are willing to pay for audiology treatments out of pocket, you can self-refer to an audiologist. It’s comparable to visiting an audiology clinic on your own. If you do not intend to use your insurance coverage, there is no need to contact a doctor for a recommendation. A recommendation is required if you want to use your insurance to see an audiologist.

At the moment, all diagnostic audiological therapies covered by Medicare require a physician order. Furthermore, the principal reason for the referral dictates the examination’s goal. A relevant symptom, sign, or complaint must be used to justify each diagnostic procedure or therapy.

A hearing aid specialist can examine hearing and recommend the appropriate hearing aid for a client’s unique hearing loss. Audiologists, on the other hand, can test and diagnose a broader spectrum of hearing and balance disorders. Audiologists are medical professionals who study the pathophysiology of hearing loss and are competent to diagnose the root cause of hearing loss. Hearing aid experts can only fit hearing aids and do hearing tests.

Hearing aid dispensers (HADs) are fully qualified professionals who can assess hearing and offer after-care services for hearing devices. Hearing aid dispensers must be certified and licensed in order to use hearing technology. Meanwhile, audiologists can assess and diagnose a larger range of hearing and balance problems. An audiologist may be more helpful for medically relevant therapies such as balance issues, noise-induced hearing loss, and earwax impactions. Both professionals are capable of fitting, adjusting, maintaining, cleaning, and repairing hearing aids.
