Unlike hearing aids, hearing implants—and even the initial hearing evaluation—may be covered by your insurance plan.* As you move forward, you should be aware of your coverage, including what's covered by the warranty. To help you understand the costs involved, we’ve provided guidance on navigating funding and insurance coverage.


Please seek advice from your health professional about treatments for hearing loss. Outcomes may vary, and your health professional will advise you about the factors which could affect your outcome. Always read the instructions for use. Not all products are available in all countries. Please contact your local Cochlear representative for product information.

Views expressed are those of the individual. Consult your health professional to determine if you are a candidate for Cochlear technology.
