Our sincere thanks to you for embracing all safety guidelines, wearing masks, practicing physical distancing, and staying home when possible.
The Hearing and Speech Clinic resumed in-person visits by appointment on June 2, 2020. Safety of patients, students, and staff is always our top priority. Our updated safety practices include the following:
The clinic has expanded its capacity to provide care remotely without visiting the KU Med campus. Also known as "telehealth," this allows patients to receive care from the comfort of home. Not all services are available via this method, so please speak with your provider to help determine the appointment that is right for you.
Please contact the clinic's scheduling team at 913-588-5730 (711 TTY) for assistance in finding the type of visit that is right for you. We appreciate your trust in our care.
Where is the clinic?
The University of Kansas Medical Center is located at 39th Street and Rainbow Blvd. in Kansas City, Kansas. Please see the maps and directions page for directions.
Where do I park?
Please see the maps and directions page.
When is the clinic open?
For regular office visits, an appointment in advance is necessary. These are available 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
For minor hearing aid repairs and cleanings, an appointment may not be necessary. Please call the office before visiting. Hearing aids may be dropped off for repair any time during business hours.
Is health insurance accepted?
We accept Medicare, Medicaid, Kansas Statewide Farmworker Health, and most private health insurance plans. Please contact the clinic to see if your health insurance provides coverage for your visit.
Do I need a referral?
Medicare requires a physician referral. Private health insurance may or may not require a referral. Please check with your insurance provider prior to contacting the clinic.
What to bring to my first visit?
First-time patients should arrive 10-15 minutes before the appointment time to complete paperwork.
Please bring the following items:
Patient packet documents, completed (see links below)
Insurance card and personal identification
List of questions for the clinician
List of medications
Parking ticket for validation
When a patient arrives at the clinic, clinic staff will take a copy of his or her personal identification and insurance card. Each patient will complete a patient questionnaire. The initial appointment takes approximately one hour.
Because there is a great deal of information provided, patients are encouraged to bring a family member or friend to their appointment. Patients are asked to make childcare arrangements for young children so the evaluations can proceed in a timely fashion.
Based on the outcome of the assessments, the patient may be scheduled for a follow-up appointment in the clinic, or clinic staff will help identify the appropriate providers in the patient's local community.
