Cochlear Accessories are So Expensive

cochlear implant coil cableCochlear implant accessories and parts can be so expensive. If you are like many of us that insurance doesn’t cover the cost of replacement parts, you can easily spend upwards of $1,000 a year to cover the cost of parts for the implants.
Take for example, the headset coil cable for the Nucleus Freedom implant. The price for just one piece is $290. This coil cable breaks frequently, and must be replaced.
Add that to the cost of batteries ($195 for each rechargeable battery), magnets ($36), microphone covers ($42). Cochlear implants are a wonderful invention, but they do cost plenty.
