The EPIC Hearing Service Plan represents hearing as a valued life asset and puts hearing aids and hearing care into the healthcare arena as a specialty care benefit. This approach promotes the value of good hearing and the need for quality professional services and products.
The EPIC Hearing Service Plan is described in four levels of service, technology and products, and costs. Therefore, no matter the degree of hearing loss, the activities of your lifestyle, or your economic status, you can be assured that hearing care is available and affordable.
The fully Insured Plan is an indemnity benefit providing coverage for hearing exams and devices (hearing aids). It is available in three coverage options including Hearing Exam Only; Hearing Device Only; and Hearing Exam & Device Coverage.
The fully Insured Hearing Service Plan is available as a stand alone product, or packaged with other specialty care benefits.
The Administrative Services Only (ASO) Plan compliments self funded, or self insured groups by maximizing any funded benefit or dollar allocations. The ASO Plan provides all functions associated with administering a hearing benefit including: eligibility management; utilization management; billing & claims administration; professional disbursements and network maintenance; and member communication tools.
For those interested in self funding a benefit, EPIC will assist in determining feasibility and custom plan design/benefit structure.
