Hearing aids are a big investment.  I've been trying to think of ways to improve the affordability.  In my research I've come across a few clinics down in the US that have adopted an "Unbundled" option for paying for hearing aids.  Currently most clinics in BC you are paying for all future products and services for the expected life of the hearing aids at the initial time of purchase - the entire cost is 'bundled' into the price of the hearing aids.  This includes cleaning and checking the hearing aids, annual hearing evaluations and reprogramming of the hearing aids as necessary, batteries, cleaning tools, domes, etc.  

In an unbunlded system, you would just pay for your hearing aids at the time of purchase, and the purchase other products and services as needed down the road.  Cost per visit would be similar to what you would pay to see the optometrist and batteries would cost around $100/year.

Going to see Donna was the best thing I ever did for myself!"
