Q: Can you self refer to an audiologist?
A: Yes, audiology offices do not require a referral from a physician to schedule an appointment.
Anyone can schedule an appointment with an audiologist to get a hearing test or ear cleaning.
Q: Do you need a physician referral for a hearing test?
A: No, anyone can schedule an appointment to have their hearing tested, even without a referral from a physician. Some, but not all, insurance plans may require a physician referral to cover the cost of a hearing test at an audiologist’s office.
Q: Is a hearing aid specialist (dispenser) the same as an audiologist?
A: A hearing aid specialist is not the same as an audiologist. The biggest difference between the two is the amount of education required. A hearing aid specialist is required to have a high school diploma (or GED equivalent), and a license to dispense hearing aids. To be an audiologist, a masters or doctoral degree is required. Hearing aid specialists have a more limited scope of practice compared to audiologists. Audiologists are experts in hearing and balance disorders.
