Who can join the Cochlear Provider Network?

Contrary to belief, all audiologists can be trained to help patients along their cochlear implant journey. It is important that anyone wanting to join the CPN has the following:

  • A desire to offer all hearing solutions - beyond traditional amplification
  • An inherent drive to be the hearing health care expert in the community
  • Comfort with a medical model and partnering with surgeons
  • Experience with billing for services
  • Licensed to practice audiology

Adding any new service to an audiologist's private practice offering requires extensive consideration of business growth and development requirements and opportunities while always focusing on obtaining the best possible patient outcomes. It is now well established that audiologists in a private practice setting can successfully integrate implantable hearing solutions, allowing providers to both keep existing and attract new patients, while developing partnerships in the medical community.

96% of audiologists in the CPN would recommend others to get involved in the network.1
