Diagnosing Hearing Loss – When Should You Have Your Hearing Tested?

Having good hearing doesn’t only make life more enjoyable, it can also keep you safe and alert in the world. You should make sure you get your hearing tested regularly in order to make sure your hearing is not declining or that a physical condition that can cause hearing loss does not go undetected. If you want to learn more about hearing tests, how you can get them and how much they cost, check out the helpful information below.

 

 

What Is a Hearing Test?

 

A hearing test is a totally painless and non-invasive test in which you wear headphones and are asked to indicate when you can hear tones that are being played through them. The test is meant to measure the softest sounds you can hear at different frequencies. Hearing tests can also include a spoken component, when your healthcare provider will ask you to indicate when you can hear soft spoken sounds, or a physical tympanometry, where healthcare practitioners can measure how well your eardrum moves.

 

 

Where Can You Get a Hearing Test?

 

If you want to get a hearing test, you can arrange for one at an Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) doctor’s office. ENT’s usually have hearing specialists — or audiologists — on-staff. You can also get tests at many stores that sell hearing aids, like Sam’s Club or Costco. Finally, there are several companies that are solely intended to offer hearing tests, like HearUSA or Beltone.

 

 

How Much Does a Hearing Test Cost?

 

The cost of a hearing test will differ depending on where you get the test done. Without insurance, hearing tests with audiologists can cost you about $250. If you get your hearing test done at a company that sells hearing aids, you may be able to get it done for free, but the specialists there will expect for you to purchase a product from their company after the test.

Getting hearing tests regularly can help ensure that your ears and your hearing are healthy and functioning well. If you are thinking about getting a hearing test, consult with your doctor first. Doctors can help you make the best health decisions possible for your body. Also, make sure you have DentalSave’s Hearing Health Care plan. Our plan gives you a 40-percent discount on all diagnostic services, including hearing exams.
