Amanda McFadden

AuD

Dr. Amanda McFadden, Au.D., received her Bachelor’s Degree in Speech and Hearing Science from the University of Iowa. She went on to receive her Doctorate in Audiology from Illinois State University, graduating in 2018. During her graduate years, she was actively involved in Illinois State’s chapter of the Student Academy of Audiology.

 

Dr. McFadden always knew that she wanted to be in a helping profession. As she was growing up, Dr. McFadden witnessed the effect that hearing loss had on her grandfather’s life, and as a result has an acute understanding of the impact that hearing loss has on communication and relationships.

 

In Dr. McFadden’s words: “I believe that many patients do not realize all they are missing when hearing loss goes untreated. As an audiologist, I feel fortunate to improve the quality of life for my patients. It is truly rewarding when my patients share their success stories about what they can hear now, and how their friends and family have positively reacted!”

 

Outside of work, Dr. McFadden enjoys exploring Chicago and visiting friends and family. She loves visiting Colorado for the beautiful weather and views. Her parents live there, near Boulder, so she tries to visit every chance she gets!

“Hearing aid test and Dr great. Billing not so. Be sure you are aware of the reimbursement and contract for your insurance BEFORE going. I was charged 5x what my insurance contracted for, and not helpful in getting $ returned. ”

Official Response from Hearing Health Center - Chicago:
“You have been a patient for ten years and purchased three sets of hearing aids. Our billing protocol, on each occasion, was the same. We billed your insurance the MSRP (Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price) nearly the same amount for each set of hearing aids. The MSRP is approximately twice the usual and customary charge, not “5X,” as stated in your review. Every patient is billed the MSRP. Patients who pay at the time of service receive a “prompt pay” discount. This prompt pay discount is not reflected when filing to insurance. For patients with a defined benefit (a stated amount), the reimbursement from insurance is the same, regardless of the amount billed. There is no advantage to Hearing Health Center in billing the MSRP. For many of our patients however, it can be significantly advantageous. Oftentimes, hearing benefits are unknown and unclear. Reimbursement might be a percentage of the amount billed and deductible requirements vary widely. Our patients are extremely grateful when their out of pocket costs are reduced. After ten years, and three sets of hearing aids, I am unclear as to why you are suddenly surprised, upset, complaining and writing bad reviews. ”
