2 – Learn about Cochlear Implants and Hearing Loss
So what exactly IS a cochlear implant?
It’s not a hearing aid
While hearing aids amplify sound, cochlear implants bypass the damaged part of the ear and use electrical stimulation to enable you to hear. Using a highly advanced system of microphones and sound processors, it’s the only technology that’s capable of functionally restoring one of the five senses. Also, unlike hearing aids that are often not covered by insurance, cochlear implants are covered by most insurance policies and Medicare.

It’s a lifelong solution
It’s not brain surgery, it’s a routine outpatient surgical procedure in which a small incision is made behind the ear to place the implant. You’ll likely be able to go home later that same day.
It’s suitable for any age
Cochlear implants can be used by people of all ages, from 12 months and older.
