Ear Molds

Ear molds are a custom-fit product worn inside the ears. They may be used with hearing aids, for hearing protection, or for recreational use. In order to obtain a custom ear mold, a cast of the ear must be taken. This is done through the use of a two-part silicone injected into the ear canal. And, the process takes approximately three to five minutes. This is to be performed only by a hearing care specialist.

When an ear mold is attached to a behind-the-ear (BTE) hearing aid, it improves the comfort and reduces feedback (whistling).

Custom fit ear molds can act as hearing protection. Ultimately, they help to reduce harmful amounts of noise in loud work environments and in recreational hobbies such as shooting, attending loud sporting events or concerts.

Recreational uses of custom fit ear molds include swimming protection to help prevent water from entering the ear, and custom head phones for increased comfort while listening to music. Additionally, they provide better fit during high impact activities, and for in-ear monitors for performers.


ear moldsEar molds, just like hearing aids, come in many different styles so that the appropriate size and comfort can be achieved for each patient. Also, they can be made from a variety of materials from hard acrylics to very soft vinyl materials.

Again, your hearing specialist will determine what style and material are best for you, including those individuals with skin allergies. Fortunately, ear molds can also come in hypoallergenic materials!

Will health insurance cover my hearing aids? What about ear wax removal?

Insurance covers many hearing & audiology services

Health insurance companies cover a variety of hearing aids. Since there are often specific requirements, and/or limitations on what or how much is covered, it is important to thoroughly understand what your health plan offers. It is our goal to find the type of hearing aid that is most suitable for your hearing loss. We will also help you understand your treatment options as they relate to your health insurance coverage.

Most insurance typically covers the cost of earwax removal services, with the patient paying only their standard policy deductible. However, the cost of earwax removal is not as expensive as you might think – without going through insurance, the cost of a standard earwax removal is $95.00 for either one ear or two.

We proudly contract with the insurance companies listed below. Our list is constantly growing, so check back often to see if your company is included. Alternatively, you can call us for assistance with your plan’s coverage, or to see if we contract with your insurance.
