Epic Hearing Healthcare

The Midwest Employee Benefit Funds Coalition (MBEFC) has contracted with EPIC Hearing Healthcare to provide for the participants hearing healthcare needs. The MEBFC is committted to helping its Member Funds by offering a hearing program that provides all the elements necessary to accomodate hearing needs at the best prices. Below are the Hearing Service Plan options available through EPIC:

  • For Funds with a Self-funded hearing benefit - ASO Savings Plan (No Access/Premium)
    The MEBFC and its Member Funds get the best pricing on all manufacture brand-name hearing instruments and accessories representing savings from 40-60% off MSRP. In addition, EPIC will coordinate with any dollar allocations or other plan coverage, as specified by the individual Funds, in order to maximize that benefit on behalf of the participant and the Fund. EPIC will also provide management of all in and out-of-network claims.

  • For Funds who want an insured benefit - Insured Hearing Plan
    MEBFC Funds and participants can purchase an insured indemnity-based plan for hearing exams and devices with a substantial premium rate fee reduction available exclusively to MEBFC Members starting as low as $0.28 for an exam benefit and $0.90 for a device benefit. This represents savings of over 40%.
    For Funds that want to transition from a self-insured to an insured hearing aid benefit for their participants, EPIC will review the Fund's hearing aid claims for the past 12 months and base the insured plan premiums in accordance with those payouts. (The idea is to provide monetary savings and adminstrative efficiency to the Fund.)

  • For Funds that do not have a hearing benefit - Added- Value Benefit
    MEBFC Funds can offer EPIC as an added-value benefit. EPIC will provide all marketing literature and administration.
