I just learned about two important USA programs for hearing aids:
AARP (1 800 523 5800) is sponsoring a hearing aid discount program that begins in 2009. The program is being run by www.hearusa.com (tel.1 888 432 7970), with pilot programs starting in New Jersy and Florida. Click on the big button at hearusa.com “Learn More About AARP Relationship” for a slide presentation. Let us hope that this will not just be a small discount on outrageous HA prices…
There is already legislation pending in congress to authorize Tax Credits for Hearing Aids of $500 per unit. Go to http://www.hearingaidtaxcredit.org/action.cfm
for help writing / emailing your senators and representatives to urge them to pass this bill. Do it now!!!
