Many people are not financially prepared to pay up-front for hearing aids, particularly in today's economy. For some, it is helpful to have payment options available. By breaking the hearing aid purchase down into monthly payments, people with hearing loss can more easily afford to obtain the latest hearing technology and services.
Audiologists, hearing clinics, and doctors' offices often offer financing options for hearing aids through third-party finance companies, such as Care Credit or the HelpCard. Sometimes, they are able to offer patients zero-percent financing for a specified term, such as six months or twelve months. Be sure to read the fine print, though: in some cases of "promotional rates," if the purchase amount is not paid in full by the end of the term, retroactive interest and penalties may be owed. Read carefully any agreements before you sign them, and ask your hearing care professional to explain the details thoroughly.
