A style and technology for every ear!
A mission of the UNC HCC is to provide affordable, high value hearing technology without compromising quality of service. Our unbundled (itemized) pricing structure is nationally recognized and ensures that patients only pay for what they need. We are also constantly exploring newly developed technology to lower costs. No matter your budget, our audiologists will help you determine what type of technology is best suited for your hearing and communication needs.
We work with the following manufacturers:
“Locked” Hearing Aids
Some manufacturers have proprietary software, which cannot be used by providers outside the franchise. These hearing aids are “locked.” Examples include: Audibel, Beltone, Miracle Ear and many Costco brands. If you have been fit with any of these franchise brands, we are still pleased to work with you! We can clean and inspect your aids and provide appropriate consultation; however, any programming adjustments will need to be made by the dispensing company.

Value Hearing Devices
The cost of a hearing aid is not determined by its size or its strength, but by the complexity of its computer chip. Top-of-the-line hearing aids have the most advanced computer processing and thus are more expensive. However, even entry-level hearing aids can greatly improve one’s hearing and one’s quality of life! In fact, in many listening environments, there is no functional difference between top-of-the-line and entry-level devices. That’s why we offer excellent low-cost options with reduced fitting fees. The initial programming and fitting of the hearing aids is identical to the service provided for top-of-the-line devices; however, follow up visits are provided fee-for-service. With hearing aids available as low as $325 a device, everyone can experience the benefits of improved communication.
