Hearing Aid Bill Re-Introduced in Olympia for 2014!

We're happy to tell you that House Bill 1356 was re-introduced last week for the 2014 session! Like 2013, it's currently listed as having 12 co-sponsors.

A summary of the bill can be found here:

The bill would require health insurance plans in the state of Washington to cover a portion of hearing aids purchased for children and adults.

We urge everyone that believes people with hearing loss deserve greater access to treatment to please contact their legislator and encourage them to support and co-sponsor this legislation.

You can easily comment on the bill and notify your local legislators in a quick minute by clicking the link here:

Personal letters can have an impact, see a sample letter here.

Calling is even more effective and the sooner you contact your legislator, the greater chance there is of the bill getting a hearing this year and possibly going up for a vote.
