With an eye toward the future, MED-EL USA, Durham, NC, announced the expansion of the company’s exclusive “2 Ways to Hear” program for new patients that includes the option to receive a future audio processor at no cost when the new technology becomes available.
According to the company, patients who normally receive a MED-EL Cochlear Implant System with one audio processor will now be able to select an audio processor of their choice, plus either a free RONDO or a voucher for a free future audio processor. Patients who receive a two-processor MED-EL Cochlear Implant System will now be able to select two processors of their choice, plus either a free RONDO or a voucher for a free future audio processor. All processors included in the promotion are backed by MED-EL’s industry leading 5-year warranty, reports the company.
“MED-EL is known for our commitment to patients through our future-ready technology built into each and every cochlear implant,” says Raymond Gamble, President & CEO, MED-EL North America. “People facing hearing loss shouldn’t put off the decision to receive a cochlear implant because they are waiting for the latest technology to become available. This promotion allows MED-EL patients to move forward with confidence, knowing that they can access the latest in sound processing strategies with a new audio processor as soon as it becomes available in the United States. There’s no need to lose valuable months of hearing, knowing that a free new processor will be an option in the future.”
New patients who choose a MED-EL Cochlear Implant System between now and December 31, 2014, will have the option to receive a voucher for a free future audio processor. The offer is only available to patients implanted in the United States with patient kit order forms and corresponding purchase orders received from September 1, 2014 through December 31, 2014. Vouchers can be redeemed for either a free RONDO or a free future audio processor through August 31, 2015.
As always, existing MED-EL patients will have the opportunity to purchase a new processor when it becomes available, and will be able to access the latest technology through their “future-ready” cochlear implant.
