Q&A: How much financial assistance can I get to get my hearing aids?

Question by Wolfeshadow: How much financial assistance can I get to get my hearing aids?
My old hearing aids no longer help me with heariong. I have worn hearing aids for a little over 9 years and now Ineed new ones. I was told my loss was moderate to severe. My insurance does not cover this and I am going mad that I can not hear well enough. I went to an ENT and they tested me and gave me a prescription for hearing aids. How can you help me?

Sertoma.org has a hearing aid exchange service.
If you are a veteran, try the local VA audiology department (under ENT).
Your state’s Department of Rehabilitation. Many states cover the cost of hearing aids.
Also try asha.org. Search “hearing aid resources”.

    Try the Lion’s club or find a Starkey dispensing audiologist and try for the “Hear Now” program. They will give you free hearing aids. You need to be financially desolate to qualify. Otherwise find the best audiologist you can with the best financing option available. The longer you go without getting the correct amount of gain, the more you could lose your ability to understand words with amplification. That is something you can’t get back once you lose it and could mean you won’t do well with a new set of hearing aids when you finally get them
