New Website Aims To Help Texans In Need Of Medicaid Hearing Aids

Hearing Aid Express launched  Texas Medic Aid Hearing Aid to help eligible Texas Medicaid recipients understand their benefits and successfully be fit with quality hearing aids.

Medicaid Hearing Aids

This site helps those eligible for Medicaid hearing aid benefits navigate the process of getting hearing devices, step-by-step.

To see if you have a hearing loss , schedule an appointment at a Hearing Aid Express office. Provide your Medicaid card and a photo ID upon check in.  We will give you a 100% free hearing test to determine the degree of your hearing loss and if an eligible hearing loss is found suggest the appropriate device.

Next, visit a doctor who will examine your ears and determine if there is a medical reason why you should not be fitted with hearing instruments . The doctor will complete a medical release form that is downloadable from the site. Bring the completed medical release to any Hearing Aid Express office and you will be fit with hearing aids.

Following a significant change in Medicaid benefits for the hearing impaired, eligible residents can now get a pair of quality hearing aids (average value of $4800) at no cost to them every five years. Prior to Dec. 2008 it was only one aid every six years.

Many might not be aware how quickly hearing aid technology has evolved in recent years. Today’s hearing instruments are tiny and are equipped with state-of-the-art features that offer quality performance.

Because there have been instances of Medicaid fraud, this website also features a special section to help Medicaid recipients avoid becoming victims.

Since hearing has a tremendous impact on lifestyle, it is important to get your hearing tested for free if you believe you have a hearing loss. Hearing Aid Express, a leading provider of hearing aids in Texas, is striving to share information and fit area Medicaid recipients with quality hearing instruments.

Arms more Important than Legs for Surgery Seekers?

The Hospital Group has reported that when it came to women opting for arm and leg lift surgery, arm lifts were the more popular option in 2009, with 38% more women opting for arm lift surgery than for thigh lifts.

The appearance of saggy upper arms can be a consequence of rapid weight loss and can become more apparent with age as the excess skin can start to hang unattractively.

This condition is commonly referred to as “bingo wings” and they are often quite difficult to change with exercise alone. With short-sleeved tops, this condition can cause embarrassment.

A spokesperson for The Hospital Group, said: “Women put more focus on their arms than they do their legs. “Bingo Wings” as they are otherwise known can be major issue for some women, particularly as arms are often more exposed than thighs.”

The Hospital Group can help you achieve slim, toned arms with specialist arm lift surgery to remove the excess skin and tissue and reveal a much sleeker, younger shape.

The Hospital Group is one of the UK’s leading providers of Plastic Surgery, number one in Obesity Surgery and Breast Enlargement experts. So whatever your requirements, you’re in safe hands!

Since The Hospital Group was established in 1992, it has risen to become the UK’s biggest weight loss surgery providers, performing more gastric band procedures last year than the NHS.

The Hospital Group is committed to providing the very highest standards and all procedures are performed by an expert medical team in state-of-the-art facilities that are second to none.

Dental Treatment Dazzles

Braces are back in fashion this year, with The Hospital Group seeing a dramatic increase in the number of people seeking dental treatment. Celebrities like Cheryl Cole, Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz have opted to straighten up with invisible braces – but the trend is not just for the rich and famous.

The Hospital Group has more than doubled the amount of invisible braces fitted this year compared to the previous year, helping people to smile more confidently. As well as an increase in people seeking braces the group has also seen a 50 per cent increase in the amount of teeth whitening procedures performed.

David Ross, Chief Executive of The Hospital Group said: “So many people suffer with low self esteem because of the colour or shape of their teeth.

“There is now so much that can be done, invisible braces are great because no-one needs to ever know that you are correcting your teeth.“Many celebrities opt for dramatically different results, but The Hospital Group can also help patients achieve more natural results.“At The Hospital Group, people can be assured of a dedicated, professional service, with astounding success rates and a limited waiting time.”

The Hospital Group, the UK’s leading cosmetic surgery experts, perform a wide range of dentistry procedures in its Birmingham-based exclusive Dolan Park Hospital, and its clinics in London and Leeds.

The NuSmile dentistry treatment centres at The Hospital Group perform hundreds of procedures each year, including teeth whitening, painfree veneers, invisible braces, white fillings and porcelain crowns. Teeth whitening treatments available on the high street can prove effective, but for long-lasting results dentists recommend professional bleaching.
