Hi Everyone. On my previous post I said that I was about to get my SounBite on Oct. the 21st, but I got a call from Sonitus the day before and they re-scheduled my appointment because my device didn't arrive yet. So, my appointment was yesterday and finally I GOT MY HEARING SYSTEM! YES!!!! Oh my God I am sooo happy to experience my new hearing !!. Yesterday I wore it only 6 hours because I had to go to bed. Today I am wearing it since I woke up. I will wait few more days to post accuratelly my experience. So far.... I love it. The new design, the louder hearing, the tiny microphone, etc. When I was talking to my husband, he said that my voice is quieter than it used to be, WOW! I didn't know that I used to speak loudly.
Regarding to your question about the cost of SoundBite, I copy here below what I posted few weeks ago.
"total amount that this Clinic is charging for the SoundBite is $6,800.00. They require from the customer the amount of $750 and the rest should be covered by the insurance. I was told that other offices are charging 1500, 1800 and so on because of the costs that they have to go through the process, for instance dentists costs, etc. In my case, because I was part of the study they will cover the value of 750 . THANKS SO MUCH SONITUS!. Regarding the balance of $6,050.00, although I filled out all my data about my insurance I was not required to give any credit card information because Sonitus will claim to my insurance and they are pretty sure the insurance company will cover the balance. I asked what about if my insurance refuses to cover, they answered that in that worst case scenario Sonitus will cover the claimed amount, but they reaffirmed me again that Insurance companies will pay. Sonitus is proceeding on this way with all the persons involved in the study. I feel so happy. My SoundBite will be ready on mid September. I am counting the days J "
I hope this help.
