Join Albany-area hearing clinics and health professionals at a Hearing Health Seminar to learn about advanced treatments for severe to profound hearing loss that could help you experience better hearing. Attendees will have the opportunity to talk with medical professionals about implantable hearing solutions – which, unlike hearing aids, are covered by Medicare and private health insurance and may be covered by Medicaid. And there might be recipients of cochlear implants who can share their stories. 1 in 10 Americans suffer from hearing loss, but there is a solution. Cochlear implants allow adults with hearing loss to understand sentences nearly 7x better on average than those with hearing aids. However, less than 6% of people who qualify for Cochlear implants seek treatment. Find out if you might be one of the more than 1 million people who could benefit from this life-changing treatment. Sponsored by Cochlear Americas, the world's leader in advanced hearing technologies.
