Why Start Hearing

We’re here to be your partner on your path to better hearing.

Dedicated to making better hearing accessible to everyone, Start Hearing provides significant discounts on prescription hearing aids obtained through our nationwide network of providers, as well as OTC hearing aids available over the counter and suitable for those with perceived mild to moderate hearing loss.

Our benefits

We proudly offer two ways to support your hearing health, each with its own benefits:

Provider-supplied prescription hearing aids

We connect you with licensed hearing care providers to treat your hearing loss in their hearing centers.

OTC hearing aids

We offer hearing aids available over the counter for adults 18+ with perceived mild to moderate hearing loss that you can purchase from select hearing professionals without the need for a prescription appointment.

No matter which path is right for you, we provide ongoing support and program benefits to help you continue to hear your best every day.
