Another key point, in order to achieve maximum performance from your hearing aids, a detailed program (prescription) must be created to fit your hearing loss in several different frequencies. From there, adjustments can be made to tweak your prescription to better fit your needs. Accordingly, it’s important to be able to visit your hearing specialist as necessary to make these adjustments. Find out if you will be billed every time you need a programming change or if it is included in the price of your hearing aids.
Your hearing specialist should take the time to talk one-on-one with you to discuss your individual situations and any hearing challenges you experience. Additionally, your specialist should offer suggestions that will help you in the different challenging environments and may also be able to customize your hearing aids to help you.
