Changes to MaineCare Benefits Manual, Section 35 Hearing Aids and Services

January 3, 2014

Effective January 1, 2014, digital hearing aids will be covered through MaineCare. Hearing aid service providers must use the State of Maine Division of Purchases’ vendors that are contracted through the Hearing Aid Procurement Program as the sole suppliers of all digital hearing aids for MaineCare members with no Medicare or other third party coverage. Contracted hearing aid vendors and pricing information can be found at: http://www.maine.gov/purchases/contracts/hearingaids.shtml

*Please note that the hearing aid policy will be updated in a few months to reflect these changes.
