Some hearing aid centers advertise free trials, but charge for diagnostic testing and trial products, and also charge restocking or return fees if you don't purchase their product. It's important to ask about restrictions and any charges prior to signing an agreement. At Erichson Hearing Aid Center, we don't charge you or your insurance company for our diagnostic testing, or require that you prepay just to try our hearing aids.
The average charge for a restock is 10% and the average cost of a midlevel product is $3500 - that's a $350 restocking fee that may not be disclosed unless you ask!
