TruHearing to Provide Discount Hearing Services Program to Schneider National, Inc.’s More than 20,000 Employees

Schneider National, Inc., a premier provider of transportation, logistics and intermodal services, is now offering TruHearing’s MemberPlus® discount hearing services program to its more than 20,000 employees. Schneider National, Inc. joins dozens of employer groups and health care plans across the country that provide TruHearing’s discount programs to a collective 100 million employees and members, including Blue Cross Blue Shield Blue 365, Humana and VSP Vision Care.

TruHearing is breaking new ground as the nation’s first state-registered discount medical health organization to provide significant savings through direct purchasing of state-of-the-art digital hearing aids from four leading manufacturers (Phonak, Unitron, ReSound, and Rexton—a division of Siemens), as well as the TruHearing private label. TruHearing also works with a nationwide network of more than 1,800 audiologists and hearing instrument specialists who provide expert advice and professional services at discounted rates.

Initially developed at the request of health plans to help reduce member costs, the Utah-based company’s programs offer discounts of up to $1500 off per hearing aid with TruHearing’s new MemberPlus program, which works like a warehouse club membership. For an annual fee of $108, members receive access to deep discounts on the latest brand-name digital hearing aids, compared to national average retail prices. In 2010, TruHearing saved participants more than $14.5 million.
