Cochlear implants (unilateral or bilateral) are used in pediatric and adult patient populations with moderate to profound hearing loss who have failed a trial with appropriately fitted conventional hearing aids. The cochlear implant consists of internal components (receiver/stimulator and electrode array) surgically placed in the inner ear and external components (sound processor worn either behind-the-ear or off-the ear and headpiece). This category includes a number of suppliers with various features available on each system. HealthTrust members have exclusive access to a product features document. It can be found within the contract package on the Member Portal. If you do not have access to the Member Portal, contact your local supply chain administrator or HealthTrust Account Manager to request a copy of the product features document.
