No. When you certify their hearing loss on a brief form, your patients receive the phone and the service at no cost.

 

What's included in the kit? 

You can customize the kit for your needs. Options include a free demo phone for your office, collateral, including brochures, and a quick reference card, and a window cling which makes it easy to let patients know you're an authorized Sprint CapTel provider.

 

I don't have counter space for all the kit parts. Do I get everything? 

Nope. You choose what you need for your office.

 

You mentioned an "installation." What do I need?

Once you sign up, a local Sprint CapTel rep will contact you to set up a time to deliver your kit. He or she will bring your customized kit, set up your phone if you selected one, and answer any questions from you and your staff. The entire appointment typically takes 30 minutes at the most.
