Untreated hearing loss is linked to:

  • Depression/isolation

  • Cognitive problems (mental decline)

  • Heart problems, such as high blood pressure and heart disease

When left untreated, hearing loss may contribute to other medical conditions, and potentially to the high cost of health care services (e.g. hospitalization). By offering a hearing benefit, both the health plan and members can achieve substantial savings.
