When you choose Ameritas for dental, vision or hearing care insurance, you get access to a value-add, non-insurance hearing care discount through Great Hearing Benefits

Today’s world is loud, and noise-induced hearing loss cannot be reversed. Did you know that hearing loss is one of the most common chronic health problem in the U.S.? About 50% of the population ages 12 to 35 could be damaging their hearing right now by listening to music too loud.¹ Factor in years of other noisy activities, such as mowing the lawn or using power tools without ear protection, and it’s no surprise people of all ages suffer from hearing loss.

That’s why we believe the hearing discount program offered by Ameritas is so important.

Welcome, Ameritas Members!

Ready to take advantage of the Great Hearing Benefits discount program available through your Ameritas insurance plan? Getting started is easy. Simply call 1-877-683-9495 to schedule your free hearing screening.

What to Expect During Your Hearing Screening

Step 1: Complete the hearing screening.
Your hearing care professional will examine your ears to make sure you do not have excess ear wax or a damaged ear drum. Discussing your communication needs will help your hearing care provider determine next steps.

Step 2: Review your health history and lifestyle needs.
The next step is understanding your health history and lifestyle needs. These details factor into the kind of technology, including hearing aids, that are right for you. If you are struggling to understand others, your hearing care provider may recommend a full hearing evaluation.

Step 3: Understand your audiogram results and try a hearing aid.
Once you’ve taken the hearing exam, hearing aids may be recommended. If so, you’ll discuss the many styles of hearing aids that would be right for you. You can even try on actual hearing aids to determine the best fit.

Don’t let hearing loss slow you down. Call 1-877-683-9495 today.

Are You Experiencing Hearing Loss?

Not sure if you have hearing loss? Here are some questions to ask yourself:

✔ Do you have a difficult time understanding words, especially in crowded or noisy situations?

✔ Does speech sometimes sound muffled, or do you often find yourself turning up the TV volume?

✔ Do you frequently ask the people around you to speak more slowly and clearly?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you could be experiencing hearing loss.

Call 1-877-683-9495 for your complimentary screening with a hearing care professional.

Types of Hearing Aids

Hearing aids are available in a range of styles suitable for all kinds of lifestyles and varying degrees of hearing loss. Your hearing care professional will make recommendations based on your unique hearing profile and lifestyle needs.
