The Over-the-Counter Hearing Aid Act of 2017 has been introduced in both the U.S. Senate (S. 670) and House of Representatives (H.R. 1652).
Any legislation related to OTC hearing aids should ensure that current insurance coverage of hearing aids is not undermined. Encourage Congress to take a more holistic approach to access and affordability of hearing aids through meaningful coverage of hearing health care services for individuals with hearing loss.
