Your investment in better hearing is a time-intensive process that, when all is said and done, benefits your quality of life in ways that you may not have experienced in years. You may not hear better overnight, but by retraining your ears and brain to process sounds that it hasn’t heard in years — a process we can help you with at NW Ear Institute — your satisfaction with your devices will continue to increase.
Once you’ve acquired your hearing aids, you’ll have access to unlimited follow-up care. And while there’s no getting around the fact that healthcare is a high-ranking expense for many Americans, we do our best at NW Ear Institute to help you get the treatment you need with financing options and payments that you can afford. Ask our doctors for more information about these options. NW Ear Institute also accepts cash, check, and Visa or MasterCard. In addition, we have partnered with other institutions to provide convenient payment options for our patients. Available options are listed below. Our front office staff can explain these options in further detail during your visit.
We accept CareCredit, the leading healthcare credit card, to make improving your hearing health easier and more affordable. With CareCredit, you can get the hearing instrument you need and conveniently pay for it over time with monthly payments that easily fit into your budget.
CareCredit is a healthcare credit card for every member of the family. CareCredit offers special financing on purchase of $200 or more* for healthcare costs not commonly covered by insurance, including hearing aids.

Masking: An electronic device called a masker may be worn to distract from the ringing sensation. Maskers fit in the ear similarly to hearing aids and produce low-level sounds. In addition, bedside sound generators and other devices can also help remove the perception of ringing.
Tinnitus Retraining Therapy:A therapeutic process in which we specialize, and has given relief to many of our patients. Our process is a combination of sound therapy and counseling, which alters the brain’s neural signals and weakens the perception of tinnitus, allowing you to live your daily life far more peacefully.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy:A type of counseling that helps to change the body’s emotional reaction to tinnitus by altering negative thought patterns and helping to relieve stress.
