Kaiser Permanente members are eligible for medically necessary hearing tests, which are typically conducted at Kaiser Permanente centers. However, other hearing health services are provided on a fee-for-service basis and are not covered by health plan benefits. These services are provided by providers or contractors from The Permanente Medical Group. At Kaiser Permanente hearing centers in Northern California, seniors can access a variety of audiology services, such as hearing tests, retraining therapy for tinnitus, vestibular testing, cochlear implants, bone-anchored hearing aids (BAHA) and pediatric hearing health services.
The California Hearing Aid Center office in Pleasanton is conveniently located on the corner of Stoneridge Drive and Hopyard Road, just off 680 and the Stoneridge Drive exit. It is situated across the street from Chili's Bar and Grill and shares a parking lot with Bank of America. Home health services provide seniors with disabilities, elderly individuals or those who have been injured with the opportunity to live independently in their own home despite their medical condition. This type of care has been proven to reduce hospitalizations, falls, medication errors and other setbacks.
As an intermittent service, home health care can provide education to both patients and caregivers about the correct procedures for transportation, the use of wheelchairs, the schedule of medications and all other aspects of daily life. If you need information about hearing well-being, hearing loss or want to learn more about how hearing aids work, you can schedule an appointment at the HearingLife Hearing Aid Center (formerly Whisper Hearing). The professionals at this center focus on your hearing well-being and offer tailor-made solutions including hearing aids for those who want to regain confidence that their hearing loss won't affect their relationships. Wearing any type of hearing aid may not fully restore normal hearing or prevent future hearing loss.
