  • There is a company, new to me, named Audicus, that sells hearing aids over the internet. The hearing exam is done over the computer with ear phones. I did mine with just my iPhone. Not even any ear buds. They have a membership plan that has 3 levels of cost. The basic level is $49.99 per ear, per month. That covers everything repairs, everything. Every 18 months you get a new pair!! I have the mid level, just received them. For $118.00 per month I have my hearing aides for both ears, plus all the needed equipment, & the charging case so I don’t have to pay for or mess with batteries. The charging case is an extra $10.00 a month per ear. Well worth it to me! The batteries are tiny, hard to handle, expensive & need to be changed every 2-3 days. At least they did on my old ones. These hearing aids are relatively affordable, you don’t have to take out a loan to get them and as the technology improves, you get a new pair every 18 months. No contract to be locked into. If you don’t like them or decide that you can’t afford them, just return them and you are done with it. How about that?!? I think it is a fantastic deal!!
