The Right Choice for Your

Hearing Benefit Program

Hearing Benefit Program

An Experienced Leader in Managed Hearing Care


Treating hearing loss is important for overall health

Untreated hearing loss has been linked to feelings of depression, anxiety, frustration, social isolation and fatigue. In general, people with untreated hearing loss experience feelings of ill-being, versus those with normal hearing, or those with hearing loss who use hearing aids.

Research has also associated untreated hearing loss with short term memory loss, confusion and dementia. Recent studies report significant impact to earnings and income, with hearing loss contributing to unemployment, underemployment and job stress.

Finally, hearing loss causes breakdowns in medical care resulting in decreased patient compliance, higher costs and less than favorable care outcomes. All good reasons to make hearing care accessible and affordable for your members.
