Hearing Aid Benefit
COBANC provides a hearing aid benefit for Active Members, Retirees, and their eligible dependents. This benefit will be paid according to the schedule listed in the Retiree Supplemental Benefits Plan. A link to the Plan can be found below.
Many primary healthcare providers, such as The Empire Plan, offer coverage for hearing aids. The COBANC Hearing Aid Benefit is a reimbursement towards the uncovered amount (See the Health & Welfare Plan Booklet for details). To process your claim efficiently, please remember to submit the Explanation Of Benefits from your healthcare provider together with the Hearing Aid Claim Form.
