USA: Consumer guide makes it easier to buy hearing aids

Addressing your hearing loss and choosing the right hearing aid can be a jungle for many first time buyers. This is why The Better Hearing Institute (BHI) in the US has published a comprehensive consumer guide titled ?Your Guide to Buying Hearing Aids?. The guidelines give confidence to first-time hearing aid buyers in the US by providing a detailed, step-by-step breakdown of what to expect, ask and look for when visiting a hearing care professional and purchasing a hearing aid.

?This guide is designed to offer confidence and support by educating the consumer. We want to help ensure that anyone in need of a hearing aid receives the very best information and professional service available so they can make the very best purchasing decision possible.? says Sergei Kochkin, PhD and BHI's executive director.

Five phases

The guide goes through the five distinct phases of the purchasing experience:

  • Gathering Information and Scheduling the First Appointment
  • Arriving for Your First Appointment
  • What to Expect During Your First Appointment
  • What to Expect During the Hearing Aid Fitting
  • What to Expect During Post-Fitting Follow-Up and After Care

According to a BHI study, more than 34 million Americans suffer from hearing loss, and it is one of the most commonly unaddressed health conditions in America today.
