Question by American_: Is it true online Hearing Planet sells returned,discontinued,stripped hearing aids as “new”? Any regulation?
Doesn’t Medicare or AARP or someone regulate selling expensive health instruments like digital hearing aids by Hearing Planet? What if senior citizens bought pacemakers the same way, then had to wait months and it wasn’t up to standards, then went to some contracted salesman to put it in? That’s what Hearing Planet does. In our situation, they sent grandma to an unlicensed person who wasn’t even an “audiologist” like Hearing Planet told us. Now what can we do?

Answer by TomW
You might want to research blogs on hearing aids or Hearing Planets to see if others have had similar experience and what they’ve done about it. I’m from Texas where nobody can even buy any medical grade equipment for home use. Only licensed qualified health facilities can, to be sure the sellers’ items are up to specs and the buyers use them properly. I hate to say it, but on line it’s always Buyer Beware!
