The Beltone Experience

Good hearing helps you enjoy life, and is the key to sharing laughter with loved ones, excelling in work or social settings and remaining independent. When you can hear, it is easy to stay involved in your active life. Wearing a hearing aid is not just about hearing better, it is about living to your full potential..

During your exam, our hearing care professionals start by talking to you, exploring your lifestyle, what is important to you and how your hearing may be affecting what you enjoy in life. We want to learn about every aspect of your ear and hearing, including not just how you hear, but how you can benefit from good hearing.

Every hearing care solution we offer is tailored to a patient’s individual needs.

At Beltone you can take a test drive before you leave the office. We use music, your family members’ voices and other real-life sounds to make sure you get the product and settings based on your activities.

The decision to have your hearing checked is not an easy one.

For as long as you own your Beltone hearing aids, you’re eligible to receive follow-up care at over 1500 Beltone Hearing Care Centers throughout North America.

Our BelCare Lifetime Care program includes complimentary annual hearing screenings, and free hearing aid inspections with cleaning and repair, as necessary.

30-Day Refund Policy

While Beltone is dedicated to total patient satisfaction, we realize that adjustment to amplification can be difficult in some very rare cases.

Minimum Loss Required for Hearing Aids

Your Beltone practitioner guarantees not to fit you with hearing aids unless hearing loss is severe enough to warrant such a recommendation. Before your practitioner recommends Beltone hearing aids, your audiogram must indicate a hearing loss that falls within a range treatable with hearing aids.

Quality Control Review

To ensure you’re fit with hearing aids customized to your individual hearing loss, your audiogram and fitting recommendations will be reviewed and approved by a licensed hearing instrument specialist, an audiologist, or an audioprosthologist.

Establishing Expectations

A smooth adjustment to wearing new hearing aids requires patience. To help you through this period, your Beltone practitioner will provide a program of personal counseling and aftercare. Your Beltone practitioner will also explain the benefits and limitations you can reasonably expect from your hearing aids.

Adapting to New Hearing Aids

To help you smoothly adapt to your new hearing aids, your Beltone practitioner will institute a follow-up schedule, based on your needs. This will ensure that your hearing aids are optimally adjusted for your hearing loss, and that your adjustment to amplified hearing is proceeding well.

Better Hearing Verification

Your Beltone practitioner is committed to helping you enjoy the best hearing possible with your new hearing aids. To document your improvement with hearing instruments, your Beltone practitioner will conduct further testing within 30 days after you receive your hearing aids.

Warranty and ‘Lost, Stolen and Damaged’ Coverage

Your Beltone hearing aids are covered by a Limited Manufacturer’s Warranty for one year. Additionally, you’ll receive one full year of ‘Lost, Stolen or Damaged’ Protection, free of charge. Your Beltone practitioner will explain these coverages, and also explain how to extend these coverages.

Two-Year Protection for Change in Hearing Loss

If a new hearing test reveals a permanent and measurable increase in sensorineural hearing loss within two years of your original hearing aid purchase, Beltone will provide you with a more powerful hearing aid at no charge to you.

Code of Ethics

All participating BelCare practitioners have signed a Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct document in which they commit themselves to promoting and preserving the highest standards of ethical, compassionate hearing care.
