Can we get Medicare to cover the cost of hearing aids & services?
The high cost of hearing aids prohibits many people from seeking hearing help. Hearing loss issues have been put on the back burner by decision makers for a variety of reasons. Today's hearing aids are far different from those of even a few decades ago. Isn't it time to rally behind the movement to include them in Medicare?
You can help by contacting your legislators to let them know this is important to you. See information from The Hearing Loss Assn. of America below:
Action Alert: Medicare Coverage of Hearing Aids-Congress needs to hear from you.
HLAA has been meeting with members of Congress, encouraging them to vote YES! to expand Medicare to include hearing aids and services. New legislation is coming up soon that we hope will include a provision for hearing health care under Medicare. That would mean for the first time, people who rely on Medicare to pay their medical bills would also be able to turn to Medicare to cover the cost of hearing aids and related services.
