So how much does it cost to cover hearing aids?

Several states have published research findings about the financial impact to insured residents as a result of offering hearing aid insurance benefits to children.  

A few cents today could not only help improve the lives of hearing impaired children, but has the potential to save local schools and tax payers hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Here's just a few examples:

North Carolina: $0.03 per month increase in insurance premium on insured residents.

California: $0.03 per month average increase in health insurance premium increase

Wisconsin: $0.17 cents per privately insured person, per month for hearing aids and cochlear implants.

South Carolina: proposed legislation is estimated at $0.35 annually or approximately $0.03 per month increase in premiums.
