A few months ago, REM Audiology started seeing veterans for hearing issues. Because of our history accepting Health Net insurance, the Veteran’s Administration community outreach program contacted us and wanted to know if we would be willing to help the VA hospital with hearing tests and aid fittings. We said yes, of course, and the very next day we started receiving calls.
So far, we have seen about 50 veterans, and the calls haven’t slowed down. We’ve given complete hearing tests, evaluated need for hearing aids, and fit aids in our offices.
The audiologists at REM Audiology firmly believe that hearing healthcare needs to be community based and community delivered. And since we are in debt to the veterans who put their lives on hold and put their lives in harm’s way to protect the freedoms of our communities, what better way is there for us at REM to pay them back than by offering premium hearing healthcare? We have always said that “improved hearing results in enhanced quality of life.”
If a veteran is in need of a hearing test, or has an issue with any hearing device, the VA hospital faxes us an authorization packet. The packet contains specific CPT codes that are then approved. After we get the packet and the codes, the first appointment is set up. Contact REM Audiology at (888) 710-5734 for more information. Ask to speak to Dr. Elizabeth Patterson directly.
