Hearing Care Professionals
EPIC Hearing Health Care was created by and for physicians and audiologists who are dedicated to improving patient care and providing high quality hearing services. We administer hearing benefits for employers, national organizations, and corporations. EPIC refers tens of thousands of patients to provider offices throughout the nation.
A recent U.S. study reveals that hearing loss is prevalent among employees but largely untreated. According to survey, almost one-third (30 percent) of employees suspect they have a hearing problem, but have not sought treatment. While many employees are ill-prepared when faced with the high cost of hearing aids, employers can help their employees overcome financial obstacles with education of coverage options.
Hearing Aid Products
Our plans feature brand name technology by the following major manufacturers: Phonak, Unitron, GN Resound, Starkey, Widex, Siemens, Oticon and Lyric. Styles vary from Behind the Ear to Completely in the Canal. EPIC ear physicians and audiologists will provide the needed tests and evaluations to verify the degree and extent of hearing loss and help you select the hearing aid best suited for your hearing needs, your budget, your lifestyle and your individual hearing preferences.
Hearing Loss & Prevention
Hearing loss is a common problem caused by noise, aging, disease, heredity and even some medications. But no cause is more profound—or preventable—than noise exposure. So protect yourself: be aware of and avoid harmful noise, wear hearing protection and turn down the volume of your radio, TV and personal listening devices, especially when using earphones or ear buds.
