Atlanta Hearing Associates has three offices conveniently located in Dunwoody, GA Lake Oconee / Greensboro, GA and Lake Sinclair / Milledgeville, GA that can serve State of Georgia retired employees.

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) December 1, 2009 -- Atlanta Hearing Associates are preferred providers for State of Georgia Retirees and their new hearing aid benefit program, which is scheduled to launch January 1, 2010. This new State of Georgia Retiree Benefit for hearing aids is supplied under the Medicare Advantage with prescription drugs (MAPD) private fee for service (PFFS) Options offered by CIGNA, Blue Cross Blue Shield and United Healthcare. Depending on the plan, the benefit is available every three to four years and pays $1,000 to -2000 toward the hearing exam and the purchase of hearing aids. The owner and chief audiologist of Atlanta Hearing Associates, Dr. Joy Pritchett, has positioned the firm to help patients get the most from their State of Georgia Retiree Benefit for hearing loss.

Atlanta Hearing Associates has been serving Georgia citizens with hearing loss with audiology services for over 30 years. They now have three offices located in Dunwoody, GA Lake Oconee / Greensboro, GA and Lake Sinclair / Milledgeville, GA that can serve retired State of Georgia and Federal employees. The three Atlanta Hearing Associates facilities provide a wide range of diagnostic tests, hearing evaluations, hearing rehabilitation services and custom hearing aid fittings. The firm carries a large variety of national brands of hearing aids from manufacturers such as Widex, Resound, Siemens, Phonak, Oticon and many others to ensure their patients can get a hearing aid that is just right for their needs.

When selecting a Georgia hearing care provider, patients should understand what a trained audiologist can do to help them with hearing loss. In addition to hearing aids, the highly trained Doctors of Audiology at Atlanta Hearing Associates can help patients with hearing problems through cell phone wireless connectivity, Captel (LCD monitor for incoming land line phone calls), assistive listening devices, cochlear implant evaluations are just a few of the services. With advances in technology, hearing aid patients report unprecedented satisfaction ratings with their hearing aids... Each patient's hearing problem is different and requires a comprehensive evaluation to determine: 1) evidence of hearing dead regions in the cochlea, 2) whether the hearing loss has a medical or surgical origin which would preclude the use of a hearing aid, 3) realistic assessment as to the overall benefit from hearing aids, and 4) customized recommendations for the patient’s hearing loss and budget..

Atlanta Hearing Associates carries five levels of hearing aid technology including: Premium, Advanced, Mid-Level, Basic and Economy. The cost of hearing aids is determined by the technology features such as: feedback suppression, noise reduction strategies, sound recovery for dead regions, wind suppression, wireless connectivity and other proprietary features that are value added to the patient.

Evaluating each patient's unique hearing situation and then developing a personalized solution is the key to Atlanta Hearing Associates success. By selecting the optimum solution from a large suite of technologies available, they can develop a custom solution that is best for each patient. Whether they need hearing protection or a hearing aid Atlanta Hearing Associates can provide a solution tailored to their hearing problem.

Dr. Joy Pritchett, the founder of Atlanta Hearing Associates and chief audiologist, said, "We are committed to serving our Georgia patients with the finest in hearing services. This time of year when families gather, adult children often notice a deterioration in their parent's hearing after not seeing them for an extended period. When their adult children recommend that their parents get their hearing checked, the parents often come to one of our facilities for an evaluation. Even if a person is just wondering about their hearing, they can take our online hearing test to see if they might be experiencing some degree of hearing loss. Because of the new State of Georgia Retiree Benefit for Hearing, we can provide patients with an excellent way to get their hearing evaluated and if required, fitted for a new hearing aid. We are excited that we can help our patients get the most from their State of Georgia retiree benefits and supply them with the best in hearing testing and hearing aids."

Atlanta Hearing Associates are Licensed Audiologists in the state of Georgia and members of the American Academy of Dispensing Audiologists, and The American Academy of Audiology. Their office locations phone numbers are: Atlanta -770-394-9499, Lake Oconee / Reynolds Plantation - 706-454-0578, and Milledgeville / Lake Sinclair - 478-452-0578.
