Hearing Aids Trade-In FAQ
In an effort to bolster the work of the nonprofit Matthew 11:15, Coates Hearing Clinic is running a hearing aid trade-in/donation drive. Simply put, patients who trade in their current working hearing aids will get 20% off the cost of new devices. The patient’s old devices will go to the nonprofit to be used in the community.
How does it work?
Start by calling us to schedule your appointment. We will perform a comprehensive audiological evaluation, which will be billed to your insurance, and discuss the results with you. If your test results show that you would see a benefit from new devices, you’ll have the option to trade in your current hearing aids and get 20% off the price of a new set of devices! Your old hearing aids will be donated to Matthew 11:15, a nonprofit started by Coates Hearing Clinic, to be used in the community.
There are different types of hearing aids providing different levels of amplification and sound modulation. Our audiologists are experts in the selection of the appropriate device for a patient’s particular type and degree of hearing loss. Our clinicians work to provide our patients with the most cost-effective options available anywhere, in person or online. In addition, you will get world-class follow-up care which research shows is the real difference between those who do well with hearing aids and those who do not.
How long is this program valid?
We will be running this program through January 31, 2022.
20% is a big discount! Is there a catch?
Coates Hearing Clinic is a private medical practice, not a chain hearing aid seller. This means that if a patient is not a candidate for treatment, we do not suggest that treatment be pursued. We don’t do “sales” and we don’t do free giveaways like you see with many of the national chains. Your mailbox is undoubtedly full of coupons from hearing aid chains for free turkeys, $2,000 off or some other offer that could result in a bait-and-switch upon arrival at the business. That’s not how we operate. The only catch is this: to get the 20% off, you have to trade in a working set of hearing aids that can be refurbished and repurposed by the nonprofit.
What if my insurance already covers the cost of hearing aids?
Have an insurance benefit that pays for hearing aids? No sweat. The nonprofit can still use your hearing aid donation! It will be put to good use in the community. Since the nonprofit is registered as a 501(c) (3) with the IRS, your donation is tax-deductible. We will give you a receipt for this tax-deductible donation.
What is Matthew 11:15
“He that hath ears to hear, let him hear”
Matthew 11:15 is a nonprofit that was started by the owners of Coates Hearing Clinic. Its goal is to help the people and organizations in our community that need it the most. Most recently, Matthew 11:15 made a monetary donation to a local therapeutic riding center to help build a viewing area for parents who are watching their children at the facility. The nonprofit also can loan hearing aids (free of charge) to patients in the hospital or hospice facilities so that none of the important conversations that happen in these places will be missed. This trade-in/donation drive is a partnership between Coates Hearing Clinic and Matthew 11:15.
