Dear HLAA Supporter,
People are shocked to hear that Medicare does not cover hearing aids. As the leading consumer organization for people with hearing loss, the time is right for HLAA to push for hearing aid coverage – it is a huge concern for HLAA members and constituents and there has been new activity in Congress on this issue. In addition, research has shown that untreated hearing loss leads to depression, isolation and more recently, a link to cognitive decline.
Medicare reform will not happen overnight, it will be a long haul. We will keep you updated every step of the way by including information on our website, in Hearing Life and Hearing Life e-News. Our work on this monumental task can’t take place without your support.
Please consider a donation today. We appreciate your generosity. This Spring Appeal is an important part of our annual fundraising campaign. Thank you if you have already given through the mail or online.
