Your Home Insurance and Hearing Aids.

home insurance

Life can come at you pretty fast sometimes and it is usually best to be prepared for the unexpected. We have all had those moments when out of nowhere we get a reality check. We are enjoying a weekend at the beach with friends or having a wee tipple with mates and suddenly things just don’t seem quite right.

You might ask, what does this have to do with hearing aids. At ‘Falls of Sound’ we believe that forewarned is forearmed. We also believe in helping our clients in any way possible. That includes providing you with advice on how to protect yourself once you have left our hearing clinic. When you wear a hearing aid that thing that seems wrong might be it has become lost or damaged.

The majority of home insurance policies will not cover the loss of your hearing aids. That is unless they have been informed of the purchase and provided with all the pertinent information.

Things you need to tell your home insurance company include:

  • Total purchase price
  • Brand
  • Model
  • Serial or Registration numbers

For a great many of our clients, the purchase of a new hearing aid is a major investment. They spend their hard earned money because of the positive impact that being able to hear clearly has on their lives. The loss of their hearing aids would be more than a financial blow. It could affect their confidence, ability to interact with those they care about and even their earning a living.

That is why we wanted to strongly encourage you to take a few minutes. Contact your home insurance company and register your hearing aids on your policy. In the event that your hearing aids go missing or are damaged, you could save yourself a lot of money by having them covered by your insurance. A small excess is better than having to pay the whole amount again and having your information in proper order can speed your settlement.

All it takes is a short phone call and the peace of mind it can bring will last forever.
