Many of our citizens, some who are classified as elderly and others who are simply babies have to go without the aids because they are unable to afford them. One woman wrote me and said that hearing aids aren't covered because she believes we could rely on sign language. I had intended to write her back but my anger festered up so high that I chose to ignore her. The fact of the matter is that sign language is a great form of communication however, many hard of hearing individuals get diagnosed way past the age where it's best to learn the language. Insurance companies should feel like they have a responsibility to cover every aspect of health afflicted by their clients. Unfortunately, a blind eye has been cast upon us and we are expected to look elsewhere for support. With that being said, I ask you to please join me in letting insurance companies know that enough is enough and we demand coverage for hearing aids NOW.
