Oligopoly - An oligopoly is a market form in which a market or industry is dominated by a small number of sellers (oligopolists). Oligopolies can result from various forms of collusion which reduce competition and lead to higher prices for consumers. With few sellers, each oligopolist is likely to be aware of the actions of the others. The decisions of one firm therefore influence and are influenced by the decisions of other firms.

"Phonak Brio is marketed for Costco to provide a level of brand name protection to our independent hearing healthcare providers by not allowing consumers easy price comparisons across different retail or independent practices."
"We own a small audiology Practice and when Costco moved in, we just couldn't keep up. Mind you, we don't just sell hearing aids, but it's looking bleak. We're having to think about closing our doors. Maybe they're hiring.

Wholesale pricing for our members!
The Harlem Shake. The High Cost of Hearing aids & the services we don't need. The "perks" we don' want! and their preferred customers pay about $350.00 per aid (premium). It must be all the parties they're throwing for us.
The High Cost of Hearing Aids, The Perks, Parties, Secret Payments and other inducements (inappropriate in hearing health care?): "marketing funds such as coop, or practice development, nor do they allow for meals and entertainment". Read More

WHY DOES THIS MATTER?
ETHICS AND HEARING HEALTH CARE
WHO ARE THE CONSUMERS?
COST TO MANUFACTURE A HEARING AID?
Hypothetically, of course. What if manufacturers only offered their latest technology through their preferred distibution channels, e.g. Beltone (GN Resound), Connect (Phonak), or a BIG BOX RETAILER and REFUSED to offer it to you?

sells the same or similar hearing aids to their customers for about $2,600.00/pair.
Private Practices pay the manufacturer up to $3,000.00 for a pair of Hearing Aids (premium)
Cost to manufacturer a Hearing Aid: Est. $100.00-150.00?
CAN'T HAPPEN? Think Again! You already don't get the pricing of the Big Box Retailer. AND The hearing aids sold through Costco are blocked by the manufacturer, so that you can't program them.
PREVENTING PATIENTS FROM
COMING TO YOU. CHOOSE UNITY!
Manufacturers say our cost is much higher because they offer private practices inducements - meals and entertainment, marketing dollars, and other payments. Manufacturers overcharge private practice audiology and then redistribute the bounty. It's party time.
Resolve to do business with manufacturers who support private practice audiology. Do business with manufacturers who support our core values. Stand together CHOOSE UNITY!

Hearing Care vs. Hearing Aid Sales.
Do we partner with manufacturers who place financial gain over hearing health care? Do we continue to support manufacturers who promote the death of private practice for financial gain? Do we continue to support manufacturers who have forgotten why they make hearing aids? Do we continue to support manufacturers who compete directly with private practice? Do we continue to support manufactaurers who undermine private practice by supplying hearing aids to competitors for a fraction of our cost? Do we support manufacturers who partner with Costco at the expense of private practice?
Band together for an alternative. Band together for better pricing. Band together to promote fair competition. Unite to bring change.

Manufacturers still need private practices. They may not in a few years. They have made their choice. You will need to do the same. They are consolidating distribution, manufacturing and you are essentialy working for them. Time to change things!
