Pretty good news article by David Pogue, former NY Times tech columnist who went to Yahoo!, now apparently working for CBS. Covers all the bases and an excellent intro to what’s going down with hearing aids in a general way relative to the 2020 Over-The-Counter law and how it may help drive the industry to lower prices. Quotes the average price of hearing aids in the U.S. as $4,700, 2/3 of which being for packaged services.

Don’t know if I want to wait 'til AUGUST, 2020 and beyond to see what happens as I doubt my insurance will cover OTC devices whereas I will get $1,000 per ear for a medically certified device. Just waiting for MFA to come to market for all the major brands seems long enough to wait (not going to Apple!) - and hoping that will be well before August, 2020!
