Select Language:


Once every year, you and your spouse are eligible to receive a comprehensive hearing test at our Charlestown Audiology Office.

All routine hearing examinations, diagnostic evaluations and middle ear analyses are provided at no cost to you. Services include:

  • Ear examinations
  • Diagnostic hearing evaluations
  • Middle ear analysis
  • Recommendation and referral to an approved TeamstersCare vendor for the purchase of a hearing aid

Hearing Aid Discount

Under the Retiree Prescription Drug Program, hearing aids are not a covered benefit. However, you and your spouse (age 65 and older) are eligible for significant discounts on the purchase of a medically-necessary hearing aid. To obtain this discount:

  • Schedule a hearing evaluation at the Charlestown Appointment Desk.
  • If the Audiology Director recommends hearing aids, you will receive a copy of your hearing test and a list of preferred vendors.
  • You will receive a voucher which entitles you to a 15-20% discount on your hearing aid purchase.

To schedule an appointment for a hearing exam, contact our Charlestown Appointment Desk.

Hearing Aid Service & Repair

If you bought your hearing aid from an outside vendor, you should return it to that vendor for service or repairs. The cost of the repair is not a covered benefit.

If you obtained your hearing aid through the TeamstersCare Audiology Office during a period when you were eligible for the TeamstersCare hearing aid benefit, we will cover necessary repairs of your hearing aid for up to eight years after you receive it – provided you are enrolled in a TeamstersCare program at the time of the repair.
