We’re past the half-year mark—so it’s time to remind your patients about potentially using their 2018 insurance benefits with Cochlear™.* Our newest technology, the Cochlear™ Nucleus® 7, Nucleus® 6, Kanso® and the Baha® 5 portfolio are designed with your patients’ needs in mind.
All of our latest technology is compatible with the full line of Cochlear™ True Wireless™ accessories, which allow your patients to stream wirelessly. Your patients can listen to music and more on the go, helping them to practice their hearing to continuously improve.
Additionally, each sound processor is equipped with our revolutionary SmartSound® iQ with SCAN** which helps to maximize performance by continuously capturing sound, enhancing what your patients want to hear and filtering out what they don’t.
Encourage your patients and caregivers to begin evaluating replacement sound processors early. The insurance approval process can take 6-8 weeks, and the shipment of new equipment must occur in the benefit year. We recommend placing replacement sound processor orders by October 29, 2018.***
New resources for patients and providers
The new Cochlear Insurance Support Center provides support for you and your patients—to streamline the ordering process and provide information on durable medical equipment codes and coverage by Medicare, Medicaid, and TriCare as well as a comprehensive list of private insurance plans contracted with Cochlear. Insurance intake forms and order forms can also be found on the Insurance Support Center.
