Humana arangement with providers
I had researched and for me the VA recommended Bolero Q90p. So I convinced my wife to try them. Her regular audiologist of 10 years was not enthusiastic but could get them for about $3200 each. Lately our news papers have ads for hearing aids from little 4" x 6" to up to 4 page spread. I called around, asking prices for the Q90s and found one that offered then at $2150 each. So we told her regular audiologist but she would not match the price or even come down.
Also, if you are on Humana, they have a buying agreement with TruHearing, where the audiologist agrees to the lowered price, ususally about 30% discount for the aids, with the normal service for 90 days. Then they revert to a normal office call but for $2000 we can make many $50 office calls.
