If prescribed by your doctor, we cover hearing tests.

Under the Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnostic, and Treatment (EPSDT) portion of your Humana Healthy Horizons medical plan, we cover medically necessary hearing screenings and diagnostic testing if prescribed by your doctor, including:

  • 1 complete hearing evaluation per year
  • Hearing aid, not to exceed $800 per ear every 36 months
  • 3 follow-up visits within 6 months of initial fitting for hearing aid(s)
  • 1 additional follow-up visit within 6 months following hearing aid fitting related to the proper fit and adjustment
  • You may need approval before getting any of the above screenings and diagnostic testing services. This pre-approval is called prior authorization.
