InComm Healthcare partners with TruHearing, enabling the integration of hearing services into healthcare delivery
According to a recent survey by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), more than half of adults report having hearing problems, but only 11% of these respondents have sought treatment. Financial limitations, including the cost of hearing treatment and lack of insurance or sufficient coverage, were cited as barriers for 44% of people with untreated hearing loss.
Through this partnership, the InComm Healthcare Benefit Card will be integrated with TruHearing’s proprietary benefits, provider and customer management platform, Echo, as a payment option for hearing aid products and services. .
InComm Healthcare provides healthcare plans with a program through which they can allocate funds to certain key healthcare benefits, such as:
- OTC products
- Healthy food
- Dental, vision and hearing
- Meals and products delivered to your home
