Financial assistance may be available to obtain hearing aids. The first step for financial assistance resources for hearing aids is to check with your health care insurance provider to find out if they carry hearing aid coverage. After that, check out the list of resources at the Hearing Loss Association of America to see if you might be eligible for any of the programs listed there. Another NYC resource is the Center for Hearing and Communication.
