I have applied for hearing aids and was turned down. Have hearing loss do to jet engine noise in the Air Force. The VA said I have a loss now, (I had the VA test and one I paid for) and I served in the Air Force around jet engines but I need to relate the two?
I have a statement from my audiologist and the ENT who is a MD that I am going to submit to appeal the rejection. Are there income limitations, or maybe I am doing this wrong??
I think my claim is valid for service connected disability rating, but all I really care about is getting my hearing back via hearing aids. My service in the AF was during the Vietnam era working on B-52 bombers and other related jet air craft.
PS I was impressed by the VA hospital I went too, I wish all hospitals were as organized and well run.
