Hearing problems are common. The good news is hearing loss is usually treatable, primarily through the use of hearing devices. However, less than 25% of people who can benefit are treated.
The EPIC Hearing Health Care Network offers UCare for Seniors members easy access to credentialed ENT physicians and licensed audiologists. By using the EPIC Hearing Network, you can take advantage of discounts on a wide range of manufacturer's hearing devices. EPIC’s prices may be as much as 60% below manufacturer’s suggested retail price, and up to 35% lower than most discount offers.
Additional plan features:
EPIC's Hearing Health Plan has been awarded the Health Network Accreditation by URAC, an independent nonprofit organization that establishes quality standards for the health care industry.
