Question by Breck5: Can my elderly Grandmother in Pennsylvania get any assistance when purchasing hearing aids?
My grandmother is 87 years of age and has recently learned that she needs hearing aids. They are not covered under her insurance, but is there any way she can get assistance through the state or other program? She is a life long resident of PA.

again write to say that all pensioners get free treatment in hospital and at their doctors in Britain,today I had new aids exchanged as the old ones are now obsolete.So many of your ex Presidents have said the olf should get free medical treatmant but have never fulfilled their claims.

I should have said all ,young and old get free hospital and medical treatment free.

    Call aging services in your state.Maybe even your local hospital could answer your question if they have an aging programs.

    Sorry but I do not believe any governmental agency provide assistance for hearing aids, eye glasses, and or dentures. We poor on fixed income elders must live and exist without the benefits of such luxuries

    Tell her to call the office of aging in her town. They have any information about all programs for seniors. There is a cheap alternative: They advertise non-prescription hearing aids for about $ 30 in magazines. Those things aren’t perfect, but at 87, she is not going to be directing the symphony orchestra and need pitch-perfect sound.

    Medicare does not cover hearing devices. Read the manual you get every year. (USA only)
