Hearing Aid Assistance

Hearing Aid Assistance

Apologize for posting two questions in a row but I thought someone may have an answer.

Does anyone know where you can get assistance for paying for a hearing aid or recommendations about the ones you use etc...
I have looked into it and the one for me that also has the additional feature to help with the blasted ringing in my ears
IS $3,000 EACH EAR !!

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Ask a ent dr. They usually know what charity organization will help with the cost.

I do not know about getting assistance for covering the cost of hearing aids, sorry. $3000 is too much! I got mine at Costco and they were $1790. for both. They work great. Most important lesson (I have learned the hard way) with hearing aids: do not forget to take them out before showering or swimming. Lol Good luck on your search for assistance. Wish you the best.

Re: Hearing Loss
When did the hearing disturbance start? You are in a picture wearing fatigues, so I'm guessing you were in the armed forces or something similar. (sorry, I'll have to go back and read your profile). I am from Canada, so I don't know how it works in other countries, , , but here, Veterans Affairs usually covers treatment for all disabilities. So if the screaming in yours ears was caused by being in high volume scenarios, such as gunfire or bombing, then that is classified as a "work related injury".
If it started at a different time, think back to see if you started any new medications around the same time.
I can't believe how many meds cause ringing and humming (tinnitus).
Good luck.

P.S @Steel. I also have tinnitus. The background noise that I can actuall hear now, drowns out a lot of the ringing.

I don't know where you went but Costco has hearing aides. Sometimes different companies offer similar hearing aides for less than the competition. Depending on where you live can also make a difference.
