How do I request an appointment?
Step 1: Contact the Hearing Health Navigator
With We Hear You Baltimore, you’re never alone. You will work with our Hearing Health Navigator to determine your health care needs. Contact the Hearing Health Navigator, Diamynn Hill, directly for your free consultation: 443-863-9931 or email@example.com.
The Hearing Health Navigator will schedule a free phone consultation with you. At this appointment, she will advise you on what care you might need, review any potential costs, and help you schedule any follow-up appointments to receive care.
Step 2: Receive hearing health care
Our Hearing Health Navigator will help you determine what services will be best for you: clinic visit, community services, or over the counter technology. She will then connect you directly with an audiologist or hearing expert at HASA or Access HEARS who will provide your care.
What will my hearing health care cost?
Your consultation and working with the Hearing Health Navigator is always free. If you have Medicaid insurance, you may be eligible to receive hearing aids covered by Medicaid.
If you do not have Medicaid, you are eligible for a subsidized rate for hearing devices. With We Hear You Baltimore, your cost is typically between $0-450, depending on your income.

The Hearing Health Navigator will help you review all of your options and make sure your option is the most affordable and best care for you.
