Cochlear Implant Cost

The combined costs for pre-implant evaluations, the implant device, surgery and post-surgical fittings are dependent on an individual's needs and the center at which the surgery is performed.

Costs can be quite significant, and may seem overwhelming, but most private and group medical insurance policies cover the cost of the device and surgery.

It is important to keep in mind that the cochlear implant center will help in obtaining insurance approval for the cost of the surgery and follow-up appointments. Typically, hospitals receive approval from insurance companies before the surgery is scheduled.
