Hearing aid benefit added for children

In accordance with recent legislation, new and renewing plans now include hearing aid benefits for children as of January 1, 2022. In policies without previously existing benefits, Anthem will cover the replacement of one hearing aid per ear every 36 months with no cost limits. This benefit includes testing, fitting, dispensing, and post-fitting evaluation.

For most plans, this benefit is limited to members 18 years old or younger. There is no age limit for ACA, MEWA, and Small Group Anthem Balanced Funding (ABF) plans.

Large group ERISA ASO clients can opt-out by selecting Rider 28 to exclude hearing aid coverage for all ages.

Please contact your Anthem representative for more information.
