Contracted Insurance Plans

If you are covered by a plan with which Cochlear is contracted, we can place an order for covered parts and accessories and bill insurance on your behalf. This eliminates your need to navigate the insurance process on your own. Covered parts and accessories are medically necessary items, which are required for the device to function, such as coils, cables, magnets and rechargeable batteries.

Please review the list of contracted insurance plans and check back regularly for updates, as we continue to work to contract with more plans. Cochlear's participation with any product or insurance plan is subject to change without notice. Insurance companies offer a variety of plans and may change the names and benefits at any point. A patient's level of coverage depends on the specific benefits outlined in their plan.
