Ohio bill would provide hearing aid coverage for children and adults
Ohio legislators recently introduced a bill that would make Ohio the 4th state to require health insurers to include hearing aids as basic health coverage for people of all ages (not just children, but also adults).
The bill,SB 257, would provide coverage of up to $1500 per ear over a three-year period. This amount would apply to the hearing aids, assessment, fitting and adjustment.
