Hearing Aid Assistance Tax Credit Act Reintroduced

Senators Dean Heller (R-NV) and Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) have reintroduced the bipartisan Hearing Aid Assistance Tax Credit Act (S.48) in the 115th Congress.

This bi-partisan legislation would provide up to a $500 tax credit per hearing aid. The Academy of Doctors of Audiology (ADA) applauds their efforts in recognizing untreated hearing loss as a serious public health issue.

Contact your Senators and encourage them to support S.48 today.

Medicare, as well as most private insurances, expressly excludes coverage of hearing aids and cost is often cited as a barrier by many people who do not treat their hearing loss. More than 70 percent of hearing aid purchases involve no third party payment at all, placing the entire burden of the purchase on the patient.

S.48, the Hearing Aid Assistance Tax Credit Act, is both immediately critical and long overdue. Contact your Senators today!
