COVID 19 Announcement: How We Are Continuing to Keep You Safe In 2021 Re-introducing in-person appointments with new protocol – click here for full information

When it comes to making your decision on the best way to invest in hearing aids, you have three options.

  • Invest up-front.
  • Split your payments with a payment plan.
  • Check if your insurance benefits cover you.

On this page, I want to share the benefits of investing in your hearing aids “out of pocket.”

There are three big reasons to do this, but before I share them with you, let me explain what you get as part of your investment with The Hearing Center of Dublin ENT.

Because there’s a big misconception about audiologists, and that is that we “sell” hearing aids, which couldn’t be further from the truth.

If you just want to buy hearing aids, then you’ll be able to find them much cheaper. Because what you get by investing with an audiologist is not just hearing aids, it’s a hearing care partner that cares for your hearing health for the rest of your life.

You have a Doctor of audiology caring for you, with one-to-one fittings, making amends to your hearing aids to perfect them, follow-up appointments to regularly check your hearing and a health care partner for life.

This is one of the biggest myths about hearing aids occurs, that “hearing aids are expensive” – but what this ignores is that your investment in hearing aids also includes the countless hours of hearing care and appointments with your Doctor of Audiology, taking into account the thousands of dollars’ worth of care.

The Three Reasons to Invest In Your Hearing Aids ‘Out of Pocket’


When investing in anything up-front, you generally get the best deal, and that’s the exact same with your hearing aids.

With the payment plan, you can split your payments with no interest but get tied into a credit agreement, and with Insurance, there is generally a lot of paperwork and a delay to taking your hearing aids home.

By investing up-front, it’s smooth, easy and you can walk away with life-changing hearing devices, straight away.


By investing “out of pocket” for your hearing care, you’re not committing to any form of debt or credit.

It’s simple, and you’ll never have to think about it again.


Whereas with payment plans, until the plan is paid off, you never actually own your hearing aids (they technically are the property of the finance company), by investing up-front, you own the technology straight away.

By owning the hearing devices, you have much more flexibility and they have a re-sale value if you ever decide to trade them in or upgrade your technology.

We look forward to hearing from you.
