Audiology & Hearing Aid Services
UnityPoint Health - Des Moines is the only hospital-based audiology and hearing aid service provider in Central Iowa. A full-range of comprehensive audiometric testing is available for patients of all ages utilizing state-of-the-art testing equipment. Hearing instruments and other assistive listening devices/equipment are available on a trial basis. Custom earmolds are also available for a variety of applications including hearing protection, water protection, musician's (filtered) earplugs, monitors and cellular telephones. Payment plans are available (interest- and finance-free).
Most health insurance plans do not cover hearing instruments, although patients are encouraged to check with their provider concerning coverage.
