Date:1/11/2010

The Better Hearing Institute (BHI) today announced publication of "Your Guide to Financial Assistance for Hearing Aids" — the first comprehensive guide on how people can obtain financial assistance to purchase hearing aids. Two out of three adults with hearing loss cite financial constraints as a core reason they do not use hearing aids, even though more than 95 percent of people with hearing loss could benefit from hearing aids.

(PRWEB) January 11, 2010 -- The Better Hearing Institute (BHI) today announced publication of "Your Guide to Financial Assistance for Hearing Aids" — the first comprehensive guide on how people can obtain financial assistance to purchase hearing aids. Two out of three adults with hearing loss cite financial constraints as a core reason they do not use hearing aids, even though more than 95 percent of people with hearing loss could benefit from hearing aids.

"No one should go without a needed hearing aid because of an inability to pay," says Sergei Kochkin, PhD, executive director of BHI. "Of the thousands of annual inquires we receive, the most frequent topic concerns financial assistance for hearing aid purchases. Sixty-one percent of hearing aid purchases involve no third party payment. Yet, today's modern hearing aids hold great potential to positively change the lives of so many.

Kochkin noted that hearing aids are not covered under Medicare or under the vast majority of state health benefit programs. Private insurance coverage is limited for adults, and only 15 states have enacted insurance mandates covering children.

"Your Guide to Financial Assistance for Hearing Aids" is the first of its kind publication that provides a comprehensive financial resource for people considering a hearing aid and allows them to quickly and easily identify charitable foundations, private organizations
