Hearing Aid Prices & Payment Plans in Yarmouth, NS
We understand that the cost of hearing aids is one of the biggest concerns people have when they are considering a purchase. At Hearing Health Care Unit of Southwest Nova Limited we do everything we can to make it easier for our clients to find a hearing solution in their budget. Part of that is being transparent with our pricing — that includes the starting prices for the hearing aids we sell, what discounts or promotions we offer to reduce the price, what government programs you might qualify for, and the payment plans we offer.
How Much Do Hearing Aids Cost?
Hearing aid prices are always changing due to new models and updated pricing from the manufacturer. At our clinic, we always want to recommend the best hearing aid that we think would work best with your hearing loss. If you have more severe hearing loss, you might require a more powerful and advanced hearing aid in order to improve your hearing abilities in different listening environments.
However, we always want to find you something that fits your budget. There is no point in recommending a hearing aid you cannot afford. That’s why we carry several different hearing aid brands and models, to make sure we have a wide selection of hearing aids that we can recommend at different price points. If you want to know more about our current pricing, please call 902-742-7835.
Hearing Aid Payment Plans
One way we help make it easier to afford hearing aids is with our hearing aid financing and payment plan options. Our payment plans are through Desjardins and PayBright, and we handle all of the application and processing with you. Every payment plan uses an Equal Payment method, where each monthly payment is the same over the entire duration.
