Where can we find affordable hearing aids? My husband needs a set but we can’t really afford to pay the exorbitant prices. Can you help us? Loud-Talking Wife Dear Loud, It’s unfortunate, but millions of Americans with hearing loss don’t get hearing aids because they simply can’t afford them. Hearing aids, typically sold through audiologists’ offices, are expensive, usually costing between $1,000 to $3,500 per ear. What’s more, traditional Medicare doesn’t cover them and private insurance typically hasn’t either.
