Congressman Cartwright Sponsors Bill to Cover Hearing Aids Under Medicare
Congressman Cartwright has sponsored a bill, The Help Extend Auditory Relief (HEAR) Act — HR 3015, to amend the Social Security Act to cover hearing aids under Medicare:
- Include Medicare coverage for hearing rehabilitation services, including a comprehensive audiology assessment to determine if a hearing aid is appropriate, a threshold test to determine audio acuity, and various services associated with fitting, adjusting, and using hearing aids.
- Include Medicare coverage for hearing aids, defined as any wearable instrument or device for compensating for hearing loss.
NVRC encourages you to contact the member of Congress who represents your district to request that he support this bill. For more information about the bill and how your representation can become a cosponsor, contact Brian Payne at 202-225-5546 or email@example.com.
