Twin Rivers Hearing Health provides treatment for hearing loss and tinnitus to people of all ages in Rhode Island. We help everyone from newborns to senior citizens. We can help you improve your hearing in a way that primary care physicians cannot by selling, fitting, and maintaining hearing aids. We can also provide you with assistive listening devices like televisions and telephone amplifiers.
We also help people with noise-induced hearing loss due to job-related noise exposure by providing diagnostic workers with compensation evaluations, training them about hearing conservation, and supplying custom-made earplugs for protection. All this makes us the best choice for Audiology in Rhode Island.
Most health insurance plans do cover the cost of the initial hearing test. Some insurance plans, such as Blue Chip and United Health Plans of New England, may provide partial payment for hearing instruments if they are accompanied by a physician referral. However, other insurance companies do not cover hearing aids.
Our staff does all of the required paperwork and will help you determine what services your insurance policy covers.

"If there were 10 stars to give, I would give them to Dr. Mary Kay!!! She is amazing on so many levels. She offers two giant gifts Hope and Hearing!! Dr. Mary Kay not only beholds a great knowledge of ear health, diagnosis and hearing, she is also thorough, direct and compassionate. My personal experience was incredible. I truly believed there was no hope. Not only was there hope, I can hear- she offers both. Her bedside manner is exceptional and services affordable. I knew I was in very good hands. It has been such a relief to find her and to know I was trusting the right person. I look forward to working with Dr. Mary Kay whenever a need may arise."
