Half of those over 60 and two thirds of those over 70 have clinically significant hearing loss. Those with untreated hearing loss are at higher risk for falls, dementia, and depression, which significantly increase cost of care:
• $2513 higher Medicare costs
• Average cost of a fall is $7150
• Average cost of an individual with Alzheimer's and Related Dementias is $50,000
Stigmas, fears and awareness of treatment options are all barriers to seeking care for hearing loss and these closely related conditions. Only 1/3 of those that need hearing care seek treatment and on average people wait 5-years before pursuing care. Annually screening for fall risk, Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) and depression often go undiagnosed during annual wellness checks.
Songbird Health Program helps seniors access affordable hearing care and programs supporting brain health, fall prevention and mobility, and mental well-being.
Our focus on education and engagement connects members to a curated network of in-person and virtual programs and therapies, providing members with an easy and affordable way to benefit from these important services.
On the back end, Songbird Health Program's unique data science application works to identify risks earlier, increase access to needed services and results in improved patient care options and the opportunity for earlier interventions. Our goal is the same as yours: to improve the health of our members and reduce overall cost of care.
