Hearing Aid Benefit
COBANC provides a hearing aid benefit for Retirees and their eligible dependents. This benefit will be paid according to the schedule listed in the Retiree Supplemental Benefits Plan. To view plan coverage, please go to the Active Member Benefits Main Page.
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.
COBANC processes claims for this benefit. If you need to speak to a representative, please call the COBANC Health & Welfare Fund at 516-794-0600.
