Last week, I met the leaders of Let Georgia Hear and learned that many medical insurance providers classify hearing aids as cosmetic rather than medically necessary. As such, the insurance companies do not cover hearing aids. Let Georgia Hear wants hearing aids treated like any other device that treats a medical problem. Therefore, Georgia law needs to be changed to require hearing aids be treated as medical devices, not cosmetic devices.
Let Georgia Hear has a petition for us to tell our elected officials that the law should be changed. I've signed - have you?
