Date:2/15/2010

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., Feb. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Designed to help millions of Americans aged 50+ who have hearing loss, the AARP Hearing Care program, provided by HearUSA (Amex: EAR), is being launched in Massachusetts today as part of a nationwide rollout.

While one in 10 Americans have hearing loss, it is older men and women who are much more likely to suffer from this life altering condition. According to the National Institutes of Health, nearly one in five adults 45-64 years old; one in three adults 65-74 years old; and half of all adults 75 years old or older have a hearing impairment.

The program being introduced today is provided by HearUSA, one of the nation's leading providers of hearing aids and hearing care.  Initially, the program will be available through the company's owned and operated hearing care centers in Massachusetts.  The company said other qualified hearing care providers in Massachusetts and across the nation will be invited to participate.

Massachusetts residents are among the millions of 50+ Americans nationwide who will receive access to the Hearing Care Program exclusively for AARP members.

"The program features more affordable state-of-the-art digital hearing aids that are also smaller, smarter and more comfortable than ever before," said Stephen Hansbrough, CEO and chairman of HearUSA.

Hansbrough added that the program offers uniform pricing and extended warranties on hearing aids and related products; thorough testing and evaluation; and all-important best practices hearing rehabilitation (acclimation guidance and support) that far exceed industry standards.

It is anticipated that, by 2011, the HearUSA nationwide network of approximately 5,000 credentialed hearing care providers will be available to AARP members in all 50 states and the US territories.
