Cochlear Implant Assistance Program: The cost of the cochlear implant procedure is the greatest deterrent to patients in need. The combination of the device itself, the fees associated with the surgical, hospital and audiological services, totals more than $65,000. This is where the Cochlear Implant Assistance Program can help. To learn more please contact Melissa Romsdahl at 303-357-5449 or mromsdahl@thecni.org to get information regarding eligibility: CNI Cochlear Implant Assistance Eligibility Criteria

Baha Assistance Program: For some patients with single-sided deafness, neither cochlear implants nor hearing aids are appropriate. For these individuals, the bone-anchored or “Baha” device is the most effective means of restoring hearing. The combination of the device itself, plus the fees associated with the surgical, hospital and audiological services, totals approximately $20,000. Often, these devices are not covered by private insurance and the out-of-pocket costs are frequently prohibitive to lower- and moderate-income families. This is where the Baha Assistance Program can help. To learn more, please contact Melissa Romsdahl at 303-357-5449 or mromsdahl@thecni.org. For information regarding eligibility criteria:
