Audiology

Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma (CNO) Audiology has two state of the art locations located in Talihina and Durant. Our licensed Doctors of Audiology provide comprehensive audiology and hearing aid services to patients of all ages. Testing Services include: Newborn Hearing Screening, pediatric hearing screenings and diagnostic evaluations, auditory processing evaluations, adult diagnostic hearing evaluations, and adult vestibular testing. Some in-depth or specialized diagnostic testing does require a referral from an otolaryngologist (ENT), and some testing is only available at one location. Please see below for a list of audiology services available at each location.

For those Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma Tribal Members who are diagnosed with hearing impairments that would benefit from use of one or two hearing aids, both locations offer full-service hearing aid fitting, adjustment, cleaning, and repair services. Hearing instruments are ordered according to the patient’s hearing needs and are top-tier devices from well-known manufacturers with state-of-the-art digital technology. Every hearing aid is custom programmed specifically for the ear that will be using it and can be adjusted if hearing changes over time. Every hearing aid comes with a three-year manufacturer repair warranty and a one-time loss and damage benefit. New hearing aids may be dispensed every three years as needed.

Hearing aids are provided through the Choctaw Eyeglasses, Dentures, and Hearing Aid Program (EDH) as a CNO tribal membership benefit. If you are not Choctaw and do not qualify for the EDH program, please contact your Tribal Headquarters Office to see if medical device assistance is available to you. For more information on EDH, please call (800) 522-6170.
