Hearing Aids and Medicare

I’ve written about this before but I can’t bring it up too many times. Please add your signature to this petition to have the Medicare prohibition on hearing aids and hearing tests overturned. It’s our future — those of us with hearing loss, and those who will develop it as we age  — but it’s also the future of our public health dollars. Untreated hearing loss results in cognitive decline, physical instability, falls, depression and isolation, more severe and earlier dementia, including Alzheimer’s.

Please add your signature to this petition to have hearing aids covered by Medicare.  If you have time, also share the link with friends and colleagues.
