earVenture as an Independent Solution for Your Practice
Traditional hearing aid manufacturers develop and create many wonderful products and have provided audiologists with training and support for many years. But, as businesses themselves, their quest for growth, market share and profit have had a profound effect on audiologists, especially independent practitioners. Their purchases of clinics have left many audiologists with no choice but to dispense the same products as their corporate-owned competition. Also, as these same manufacturers have moved into big box and online retailers, audiologists are struggling to win the price shopping war and find hearing aid options that are not available, at a lesser cost, from these entities. earVenture is offering a solution to this dilemma.
The earVenture devices offer the most important hearing aid features for enhanced patient performance and success: eight channels, noise suppression, feedback management, directional microphones and a telecoil. earVenture products are only available directly through independent providers. The low cost of goods the earVenture device affords, as well as the a la carte repair and warranty options, allows for greater flexibility in price and delivery options for both you and your patients.
The hearing aids can be dispensed as either a bundled service, where the items/services surrounding the hearing aid fitting are billed to the patient under a single code, or unbundled service, where the items/services surrounding a hearing aid fitting are billed to the patient individually, using separate codes.
Bundled billing can be useful in practices where the provider wants to either maximize their profit or offer a low cost alternative to their patients. Unbundled billing could allow you to bring patients into your practice and fit hearing aids at prices comparable to many high-end personal sound amplifiers, hearables or hearing aids available from online retailers.
