According to The Better Hearing Institute, two out of three adults with hearing loss do not purchase hearing aids because of financial constraints. At Appalachian Audiology, we work with individuals to make premium hearing instruments accessible and affordable. We accept multiple forms of payment, provide a monthly financing option, and bundle lifetime services into the purchase price of hearing aids.
Accepted Forms of Payment
Appalachian Audiology accepts multiple forms of payment including cash, check, and credit card (American Express, Visa, Discover, and MasterCard).
Monthly Payments through CareCredit
We also offer a 12-month, interest-free financing plan through CareCredit. Care Credit extends a line of credit to qualified applicants and offers low monthly payment options, no up-front costs, and no pre-payment penalties. Interested individuals can apply online and receive instant approval. Once you have your account number, we can manually enter the information, secure payment, and dispense the devices. There’s no need to wait to receive the actual card in the mail!
The entire application process takes about 10 minutes. Please note that Appalachian Audiology participates in the 12-month financing plan.

A tax credit for hearing aids?
Currently, Congress is considering a hearing aid tax credit. The proposal would provide a $500 tax credit per hearing aid available once every five years. We encourage all consumers to contact their Congressional Representatives in support of the Hearing Aid Assistance Tax Credit Act. For more information, click here.
