Audiology Care: Hearing loss is the one process in which there is no prosthetic for, hearing aids only help what hearing a person has left. People with hearing difficulties accrue permanent hearing loss on a daily basis if left untreated. Once a loss becomes permanent, there is nothing a hearing instrument can do to help (this is why some people who wear hearing instruments still have difficulties hearing, they waited to long to get help). The hearing loss process is typically 10-15 years in duration, a pain free process and in the beginning there are zero signs or symptoms. Hearing loss can only be effectively evaluated with the aid of a computer and people will benefit the most from early diagnosis. These are covered benefits under Medicaid/Medicare which we are a provider of.
Screenings – Because of the technologically advanced equipment (otoacoustic scanning technology) we use, we are able to identify hearing deficiencies in patients with Alzheimer’s and Dementia (most mobile providers do not have this capability).

Audiology Employee Plan – We have extended our audiology coverage to include the staff as-well as the residents, this is unique only to Mobile Medical. Not only do we have the ability to get residents coverage for hearing instruments (not covered by Medicaid) but the staff as well. We are a provider of a State of Michigan program that provides funding for hearing aids. This is an amazing program that most people do not know about.
We work together as a team to enhance clarity of hearing for residents in long-term care. We strive to promote dignity and self-confidence, involve the patient and his/her family in the plan of care, increase patient morale, and help reduce hearing healthcare costs. Our team believes in providing exceptional hearing healthcare and excellent customer service.
