Hearing Aid Services Covered by Medical Assistance Hearing aid services are "the services provided by a hearing aid services provider that are necessary to dispense hearing aids and provide hearing aid accessories and repairs." For hearing aid services to be covered by medical assistance, the following steps are required: a physician must decide that a person does not have a medical or surgical condition that would contradict the hearing aid fitting; a physician must recommend that the person gets an audiologic evaluation and if hearing aids are medically necessary for the person; the person who does the audiologic evaluation must order specific hearing aids based on the results of the evaluation; the hearing aid service provider must supply the recommended hearing aid; and the physician should schedule a follow-up visit within 30 days to determine the hearing aids' effectiveness.
