In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, many brick-and-mortar businesses have had to pivot their business model to accommodate the new social distancing protocols, including hearing care center Eargo. In an effort to assit those affected by the new pandemic-related regulations, Eargo is offering is making use of their telemedicine services and on-staff clinicians by offering free consultations available to all – customer or not, regardless of insurance coverage.
"Over the last few days, we have seen cities across the country ask citizens to do their part in preventing the spread of coronavirus by remaining indoors," said Christian Gormsen, CEO of Eargo. "While we support this effort, we know that social isolation puts a tremendous burden on both the livelihood and health of those in affected areas by limiting access to specialists and services. We want to make sure anyone who is experiencing hearing difficulties, whether you're a customer or not, has access to licensed hearing professional support. Your hearing health is our top priority, and we will continue to be available to all to address their hearing health needs whenever they need it, wherever they need it."
