Are cochlear implants covered by insurance?

Yes. In many/most situations, cochlear implants are covered by Medicare/Medicaid and by the majority of private and commercial insurers. However, it is important to understand that "coverage" varies, and although a particular insurer "covers" cochlear implants, they may only partially cover cochlear implants. It is very important to have cochlear implants "pre-approved" and to discuss your insurance coverage with your insurer. Most of the doctors that perform cochlear implant surgery have insurance people in their offices who will be able to work with you to determine your exact insurance coverage.
