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=
ver=20
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=
u=20
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=

specialists. I agree with many of the statement made that it=B4s not =

Oh, by the way, our price is only valid for Swedish citizens.
