As an insurance expert, I meet many people, families, individuals, and people from all walks of life. And regardless of what stage they’re at within their life, the majority face the same concerns.
When they’re speaking to me about insurance, I often find that people ask the same question. In Veterans’ instance, the question is always; Will my insurance take care of me if I need it?
I’ve always been driven by the same three goals throughout my career, helping people, offering people security, and ensuring that they get the best care available.

Will I Be Covered For Hearing Aids
Patients with TriWest insurance are typically covered for a substantial level of treatment. The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) requires initial testing results for hearing aids to be submitted within two business days of the evaluation. All hearing aids are ordered through VA’s national hearing aid contracts, meaning that hearing aids will not be purchased under the VA Community Care Program.
Once the audiologist agrees that hearing aids would be beneficial, the community-based audiologist will work together with the patient, help choose the correct device, pre-approved through VA manufacturers, and then create molds to fit the patient.

What Happens Once My Hearing Aids Have Been Issued?
When a hearing aid is issued to a Veteran, medical documentation for follow up appointments, fittings, and adjustments, must be returned within 30 calendar days from the service date.
The audiologist at the VAMC will update the Veteran’s medical records.
No Veteran shall be left without substantial follow up appointments, as well as scientifically validated measurement instructions for their devices.
