Commercial healthcare marketing groups are pursuing audiologists. They want audiologists to join national provider networks to provide audiology services and hearing aids. Otolaryngologists and hearing aid dispensers have also been contacted. As individuals or as a group, audiologists have increased opportunities to contract with insurance plans such as Blue Cross/Blue Shield (BC/BS); labor unions; pension plans; and other local, state, and national groups offering health benefits that may also include hearing care. Subscriptions in these hearing-care programs are sold to individuals by insurance brokers, insurance companies, third party administrators (e.g., Blue Cross/Blue Shield), specialty group purchase plans, or employers.
