WebMD Article on Debut of OTC Hearing Aids

The article is now a little long-of-tooth, coming from March 26, 2019, but it’s a pretty good review of prescribed hearing aids vs. coming OTC hearing aids, the pros, the cons, etc. Says August 18, 2020 is the date that the FDA will propose its formal rules for selling OTC aids (that’s this coming Tuesday). Don’t know if the pandemic has pushed back that date?

Interesting would like to see how this is implemented in real life. Based on what I read in other articles it was met more for mild to moderate hearing lose. I am excited to see if that has changed and what comes out and how it works. Great news just need to see what happens time will tell.
