Unlike hearing aids, cochlear implants are covered by most insurance plans, including Medicare and Medicaid. For assistance with coverage, call toll-free 855.840.4327 or explore AB’s website.
Everyone is different and the hearing experience is unique to each person. The majority of recipients say that the sound they receive and understand improves with time. Regular practice can help improve listening.
Most people initially diagnosed with nerve deafness instead have damage to the cochlea. Talk to a hearing health professional to find out if this is true in your case. A cochlear implant would bypass the damaged cells and stimulate the hearing nerve.
Advanced Bionics has developed its system to be fully upgradeable so that you can take advantage of tomorrow’s technology with today’s implant—without the need for reimplantation.
Cochlear implantation is relatively simple and minimally invasive. In most cases, implantation can be done on an outpatient basis.
