Hearing Industries Association (HIA) Applauds Introduction of Federal Legislation to Help People with Hearing Loss Get the Hearing Aids They Need
Date:11/14/2013

WASHINGTON, Nov. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Hearing Industries Association (HIA) strongly supports the Hearing Aid Assistance Tax Credit Act introduced by Senators Tom Harkin (D-IA) and Dean Heller (R-NV). This important legislation, S.1694, is a significant step in ensuring that children and adults with hearing loss are able to obtain the hearing aids they need.

Numerous studies have linked untreated hearing loss to a wide range of physical and emotional conditions, including impaired memory and ability to learn new tasks, reduced alertness, irritability, negativism, anger, fatigue, tension, stress, depression, and diminished psychological and overall health. A 2013 study even suggested that hearing loss among older adults may be associated with faster rates of measurable cognitive decline.

Only about a quarter of the nearly 40 million people in the United States with hearing loss use hearing aids.
