When Hearing Aids are No Longer Enough

Join us for a FREE Hearing Health Seminar

If your hearing aids are no longer enough, attend a free seminar to learn if an implantable hearing solution is right for you and meet doctors and audiologists. Unlike hearing aids, most hearing implants are covered by Medicare. They are also covered by many insurance plans and typically Medicaid.*

Wellspan Ephrata Community Hospital, Health Pavilion 1 & 2
169 Martin Ave., Ephrata, PA 17522
