    Some insurances refer to hearing aids as DME. Others do not. Not sure in what context you are referring.

    Most insurances will specify if they cover hearing devices and do not lump them into DME categories. Talk to a live person at your insurance company and specifically ask them about your “hearing aid coverage”.
