Frequently Asked Questions

IS THERE A TRIAL PERIOD? OR HOW DO I DEMO THE DEVICE?

1. THERE IS NO TRIAL PERIOD DUE TO THE CUSTOM NATURE OF THE DEVICE.

2. UNLIKE HEARING AIDS, SOUNDBITE IS A CUSTOM-MADE PROSTHETIC DEVICE THAT GOES IN THE MOUTH.

3. HOWEVER, WE CAN DEFINITELY DEMONSTRATE THE CONCEPT OF BONE CONDUCTION WITH A HEADBAND OR IN THE SOUND BOOTH BEFORE YOU MAKE YOUR DECISION. ASK YOUR CLINICIAN FOR A DEMONSTRATION OF BONE CONDUCTION UTILIZING A HEADBAND, BITE BLOCK, OR BONE CONDUCTOR.

HOW WILL SOUNDBITE™ FEEL IN MY MOUTH?

1. IN THE CLINICAL STUDIES, 95% OF ALL PEOPLE SAID THEY WOULD RECOMMEND SOUNDBITE™ TO A FRIEND WITH SINGLE SIDED DEAFNESS.

2. LIKE A RETAINER OR WEARING GLASSES FOR THE FIRST TIME, IT WILL TAKE SOME TIME TO ADAPT. IT COULD BE AN HOUR OR A FEW DAYS.

Frequently Asked Questions

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST? OR WHAT IF MY INSURANCE DOESN'T PAY?

1. UPON COMMITTING TO SOUNDBITE™ TREATMENT, YOU PAY A $600 DOWN PAYMENT TO SONITUS MEDICAL TOWARD THE DEVICE FEE, PLUS A DENTAL RECORDS AND SCREENING FEE TO THE PARTNER DENTIST, PLUS A FITTING AND PROGRAMMING FEE TO YOUR HEARING PROVIDER.

2. AS A DURABLE MEDICAL EQUIPMENT COMPANY, SONITUS MEDICAL OFFERS PATIENTS COMPREHENSIVE REIMBURSEMENT SERVICES. WHAT THIS MEANS IS THAT SONITUS MEDICAL WILL FILE A CLAIM FOR THE DEVICE FEE WITH YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY AND EXHAUST ALL REASONABLE EFFORTS TO COLLECT PAYMENT. THIS INCLUDES LEVELS OF APPEAL, WHICH CAN TAKE MONTHS. FIGHTING ON YOUR BEHALF FOR REIMBURSEMENT OF YOUR SOUNDBITE SYSTEM IS PART OF THE VALUE THAT SONITUS MEDICAL PROVIDES TO YOU.

3. YOU REMAIN ULTIMATELY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE PAYMENT. IF A BALANCE REMAINS TOWARD THE DEVICE FEE AFTER EXHAUSTING ALL REASONABLE EFFORTS TO APPEAL, SONITUS MEDICAL WILL BILL YOU THE DIFFERENCE. IN SUCH EVENT, SONITUS MEDICAL MAY OFFER PATIENT ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS BASED ON NEED AND CIRCUMSTANCE. CONTACT SONITUS MEDICAL FOR MORE INFORMATION.

4. THE $6800 DEVICE FEE COMES WITH A THREE YEAR WARRANTY. YOUR HEARING IS VITAL AND A WORTHWHILE INVESTMENT.
