If you need hearing aids, and have been putting off the purchase, we’ve got news for you—private insurers in New Jersey, Massachusetts and New York with hearing aid benefits, giving you all the more reason to get a pair.

Left untreated, hearing loss may cause depression, anxiety and even cognitive decline. In fact a new study of 3,670 adults over the age of 65 over a 25 year period showed a greater degree of cognitive decline for those who had untreated hearing loss compared to those who used hearing aids. The rate of cognitive decline was the same among those who used hearing aids and those with normal hearing.

Here’s a list of insurance companies currently offering hearing aid benefits in NJ, NY and MA.

New Jersey insurance plans:

  • UnitedHealthcare
  • UnitedHealthcare Oxford
  • Aetna
  • Horizon NJ Health
  • Department of Treasury

New York insurance plans:

Massachusetts insurance plans:
