HSA FSA cardsWith the holidays approaching, many are looking to expand their budget for gifts and charitable giving. One area people commonly overlook is their medical needs, and the funds in their Health Savings or Flexible Spending Accounts.

Many are unaware that their hearing aids, hearing aid batteries and additional hearing device equipment are covered by an HSA and FSA.

But what are the benefits of these devices versus traditional ones? The experts at Hearing Associates explain why you should consider the rechargeable option if you’re in the market for new hearing aids.

Save Money on Batteries

After the initial investment in a docking station, there’s no need to purchase additional batteries. Not only does this save on those purchases, but it also saves you an extra trip to the store when all you need is a package of batteries. 

The Lion's ClubAfter you’ve upgraded your hearing aids, what do you do with the old ones? Did you know there are organizations that can recycle, refurbish and even refurbish your old hearing aids?

Hearing Associates works with the Iowa Lions Club Hearing Aid Bank, who accepts unused hearing aid devices, refurbishes them, and distributes them to qualified individuals.  If you or someone you know is in need of financial aid for a hearing device, you can apply for assistance.

If you have an old set of hearing aids you would like to donate, bring them into Hearing Associates and we will send them to the Iowa Lions Club on your behalf. We are happy to provide a receipt for the tax-deductible donation of the hearing aids.
