Financial Loss & Hearing Health

 

Can Hearing Loss Cause Financial Loss?

A national study by the Better Hearing Institute (BHI) found that people with untreated hearing loss lose as much as $30,000 in income annually, depending on their degree of hearing loss. This study revealed that there is a connection between hearing loss and unemployment or partial employment. Hearing impaired individuals typically make lower wages than their counterparts as well. Hearing loss not only has a devastating effect on an individual’s quality of life; impacting their psychological, social, cognitive well-being; it also impacts financial well-being.

What Can I Do?

hearing loss can lead to financial loss

Studies show people with hearing loss typically suffer from financial loss as well. Studies also suggest a correlation between hearing loss and unemployment.

After obtaining treatment for a hearing impairment, this financial burden is substantially decreased. Overall job performance at work, the opportunity for promotion and earning power are all positively affected.

The BHI study found that the use of hearing aids reduced the risk of income loss dramatically—by 90 to 100 percent for those with milder hearing loss, and from 65 to 77 percent for those whose hearing loss was severe to moderate. The study also found that people with severe hearing loss who do use hearing aids are nearly twice as likely to be employed as their peers who do not use them. Waiting to treat your hearing loss may cause financial hardship. Call Advanced Hearing Group to schedule your exam.

We want to thank Dr. Johnson and the staff at the South Scottsdale office, for their prompt service, when I had a problem, with one of my hearing aids. They saw me within an hour of my call to their office and resolved the problem, in a few minutes. We appreciate a business that is so helpful and caring.

As a person who was just diagnosed with tinnitus and some hearing loss, I decided to see Dr. Gary Johnson and discuss if hearing aids would be beneficial to me. Dr. Johnson gave me a thorough examination and evaluation and recommended hearing aids for me to help with the hearing loss and help quiet the tinnitus. I have been wearing my new hearing aids for about 2 months now and I am so happy with them. Dr. Johnson did a wonderful job evaluating what would work for me. He is very pleasant, listens to the needs of the patient, answers all questions and makes you feel very comfortable. I have been helped with the hearing aids for both my tinnitus and hearing loss. Don’t hesitate to go see Dr. Johnson if you are in need of someone who can help with your tinnitus and hearing problems. He is the best in the business.
