ESIC adopted the Central Government Health Scheme policy/guidelines regarding reimbursement of the cost of cochlear implant surgery for its beneficiaries.
The ceiling rate of a cochlear implant shall be Rs.5,35,000/- for reimbursement of the cost of a cochlear implant.
A cochlear implant system consists of a sound processor (1) and a small implant (2&3) which is implanted by an Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) surgeon. Together, they are designed to pick up sounds from the environment and transmit them directly to the hearing nerve (4), helping to restore sound clarity even in noisy environments.
If your hearing aids are not giving you clear hearing then a cochlear implant may help you hear again.
