by | Dec 20, 2023 | Insurance

In the intricate dance of daily communication, hearing is a vital partner. It connects us to the world, enabling meaningful interactions with family, friends, and colleagues. But when hearing becomes impaired, these connections can weaken, often leading to isolation and frustration.

Thankfully, modern hearing aid technology offers a solution, providing clarity and improving the quality of life for those with hearing loss. A crucial aspect of accessing these technologies, however, is understanding and utilizing your insurance benefits.

This is where Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) comes into play, especially for patients at AVI New England.

Dr. Natan Bauman

For more than 40 years, I have had the honor and opportunity of helping thousands of local, national, and international people to achieve a better life through better hearing. As an audiologist and electronic engineer, I have changed the course of the hearing aid industry by inventing the Receiver-In-The-Canal, the most widely used hearing aid in the world. Additionally, I established a tinnitus and sound over-sensitivity clinic and developed a special treatment program which I have been teaching to other practitioners nationally and internationally. Our practice follows the key principles that have defined my career: an adherence to best practices, use of the latest technologies, and personalized care in which the patient is treated as family.
