Creating a competitive advantage

Why offering premier loss and protection coverage can help patients — and your practice

Your patients trust you.

By offering premier loss and protection coverage, you can provide clarity in the complex insurance marketplace for hearing instruments. Insurance coverage offers consistent quality of care by extending loss, damage and repair coverage. It also provides peace of mind to your patients, improves patient retention and provides a competitive advantage in a shifting marketplace for hearing instruments.

Providing premier loss and protection coverage also creates patient loyalty after the manufacturer’s warranty expires. This “stickiness” can limit the number of patients leaving for a competitor and lessen the likelihood they’ll choose an over-the-counter, low-cost or third-party retailer’s product. Simply put, offering these services keeps your patients engaged with your practice — and not the competition.

Hearing loss in the United States


ESCO’s coverage options

With the following programs, your patients can extend their loss, accidental damage and normal wear and tear coverage, providing invaluable peace of mind. Practitioners may send repairs directly to the manufacturer or a repair lab of their choice, and upon claim approval, ESCO will cover the cost of repairs during the warranty extension period. Devices must be in good working order and proper physical condition to be insured.

For example, if a patient is an avid fly fisherman who consistently loses or damages hearing aids, ESCO’s premier loss, accidental damage and repair coverage will ensure that the device is repaired or replaced, get the patient back on the water quickly and create an ongoing relationship with your practice.

So protect your patients and watch your practice grow.
