North County Audiology Offers Interest-Free Financing for Hearing Aids

San Diego hearing care provider partners with CareCredit to offer health care financing with flexible terms.

(PR.COM) SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA – June  4, 2012 – San Diego hearing care provider, North County Audiology,, announces its partnership with CareCredit,, to provide its patients with convenient financing options to assist with the purchase of new hearing aids.

With the cost of a digital hearing aid ranging between $850 to $3,500, depending on the level of technology used in the hearing aid device, it’s no surprise that many hearing care patients put off buying a new hearing aid because of the significant upfront cost. To address this, North County Audiology is now able to offer convenient payment plans via CareCredit, an organization that provides a convenient alternative to consumer credit cards, cash or checks.  CareCredit allows patients to pay for their hearing aids over time, often without incurring interest charges, instead of a paying for the hearing aids in full on the day of pick up.  This allows the staff at North County Audiology to focus on recommending and providing the best care and devices for their patients and their budget.

Innovative technology is improving hearing among people with a broad range of hearing loss needs, while becoming more visually discrete. There are various types of digital and analog hearing aids, including Behind-The-Ear (BTE), in-the-ear (ITE), in-the-canal (ITC), and completely in-the-canal (CIC) aids. But since the average cost of a set of digital hearing aids is approximately $3900, many people are unable to reap the benefits of enjoying the latest technology.   But now with North County Audiology’s hearing care financing, San Diego hearing loss patients are able to receive convenient monthly payment options, so the optimal hearing aid can be within reach.

“North County Audiology is proud to partner with CareCredit to offer our hearing loss patients convenient and flexible financing options, including up to 18 months interest-free financing,” explains Dr. Kenneth Podlenski, Owner and Doctor of Audiology at North County Audiology.  “By offering these new financing options, we hope more of our hearing loss patients will be able to afford to purchase the hearing aids they need to maximize their quality of life.  We hope more of our patients will take advantage of this offer and enjoy the latest technology in hearing aids.”

North County Audiology now offers hearing care financing with special financing plans and low monthly payment options, with no upfront costs, and no pre-payment penalties.  It is hoped that patients can immediately reap the benefits of better hearing with new hearing aids without having to worry about paying for their hearing aids all at once.
