I=B4ve read the discussion on the pricing of Widex Senso in the U.S a=
Canada. The price for a Senso in Europe has then come up to debate. O=
here it is different from country to country. In the Scandinavian par=
hearing health is much paid for via our taxes. In Sweden allmost all=
hearing aid dispensing is done by public health care. Where I work yo=
pay about 40 US dollars for hearing aids (one or two) disregarding br=
or model. We have waiting list of about 14 months for those older tha=
65, 3 months for those between 20 and 65 and no waiting for those you=
than 20. There are some private audiologist, but not many. They will=
charge approximately 1700 US dollars for a Senso. Their prices of cou=
being held down by our price of 40 dollars. But it is very doubtful i=
they=B4re making any profit by dispensing hearing aids for these pric=
Most of them probably get by on doing hearing test for private ENT=
specialists. I agree with many of the statement made that it=B4s not =
only a=20
matter of price you have to look at the whole package.=20
Oh, by the way, our price is only valid for Swedish citizens.
