How To Sync and Connect Your iPhone Hearing Aids to your iPhone

Step 1 – Make sure you have Bluetooth enabled on your iPhone

Go to Settings > Bluetooth > Toggle ON

Step 2 – Make your iPhone search for the hearing aids

Find the Settings Menu. Select General. Select Accessibility. Select Hearing Devices. If you see the name of your hearing aids select them and proceed to step 4

Step 3 – Make sure your hearing aids searchable

Open and close the battery doors on your hearing aids. This puts them in pairing mode so your phone can find them. Check your phone to see if the name of your hearing aids pops up. If it does not after 5-7 seconds, select Accessibility in the upper left corner, then select hearing devices again.

Step 4 – Pair each hearing aid with the iPhone

Once you select the name of your hearing aids you should receive a pairing request for each hearing aid. Select pair when it appears on your screen. (Wait a few seconds for the next request to appear if you use 2 hearing aids.) You will know your hearing aids are successfully paired because the name will change from black to blue and a check mark will appear to the left.

How much are iPhone hearing aids:

The cost of the hearing aids will vary depending on the technology level purchased. Some insurance companies cover the costs of hearing aids and hearing exams.

For example:
Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) covers diagnostic hearing and balance exams if your doctor or other health care provider orders them to see if you need medical treatment.

Medicare doesn’t cover hearing exams, hearing aids, or exams for fitting hearing aids.
Who’s eligible?
All people with Part B are covered.

Your costs in Original Medicare

  • You pay 100% for exams and hearing aids.
  • You pay 20% of the Medicare-approved amount for your doctor’s services for covered exams, and the Part B deductible applies.
  • In a hospital outpatient setting, you also pay the hospital a copayment.

Note
To find out how much your specific test, item, or service will cost, talk to your doctor or another healthcare provider. The specific amount you’ll owe may depend on several things, like:

  • Other insurance you may have
  • How much your doctor charges
  • Whether your doctor accepts assignment
  • The type of facility
  • Where you get your test, item, or service
