Understanding Bundling and Unbundling

When we talk about bundling or unbundling, we are talking about the fees associated with the treatment of your hearing loss including the cost of services plus the cost of the hearing instruments. The bundled model began with hearing aid dealers, even before audiologists began dispensing hearing aids. Bundled pricing includes all provider care, services and cost of the hearing aids in one “bundled” price. With unbundled plans, the fees are itemized and we collect payment for the hearing aids and only those fees associated with the initial fit of the hearing instruments. Future services and supplies are billed at the time of service. Unbundling allows for a lower initial cost to begin your journey to better hearing while bundled plans provide the convenience of one payment that covers several years of service.

Bundled Pricing

This means that the care you receive, as well as the hearing instruments, are bundled into one price and typically there are very few other fees charged. No nickel and diming. This makes sense if you are a first time hearing aid wearer with no experience with hearing aids. Here’s what’s included:

Service Plan
  • Consultation
  • Initial Hearing Aid Programming Prescribed to Your Hearing Loss
  • Real Ear Measurement
  • Electronic Test of hearing aids
  • Clean and Check of Hearing Aids as needed
  • Office Visits, Curbside Visits, Virtual and Telecare Services as needed
  • Most Replacement Hearing Aid Parts
  • Hearing Aid Batteries
  • 15% off all additional regularly priced services when paid by cash or check at the time of service

Unbundled Pricing

This means that the hearing aids, provider care, services and procedures are itemized. Some care services are required for the fitting of the hearing aids and are non-negotiable. You will see these services below and everything is itemized so it is easy to see what you are paying for. No additional services, supplies or perks are included, every service has a fee after the initial fitting of the hearing aids, including every appointment short or long, virtual, face-to-face or curbside; with anyone in our office, doctor or assistant. Troubleshooting hearing devices, reconnecting hearing aids with your phone or television or other devices will be charged after the initial pairing. Hearing aid parts and supplies, every battery, every item, has a charge. No, we won’t charge you to make an appointment, but we do have online booking available. This makes sense if you feel you won’t need a lot of assistance with your hearing aids and devices. Here is the breakdown:

Which Hearing Healthcare Pricing Is Best for You?

We won’t know until we meet with you. Sure, pricing looks very different, but when you unbundle, you may pay more in the end depending on the care you need and how comfortable you are taking care of your own instruments. The adaptation to hearing aids does take some time and some people have more questions and need more assistance than others. Some of our patients have vision, dexterity, or cognitive problems that make the care of their hearing aids difficult and will require more assistance from us.
