Aiding Georgia’s Children

Young girl with hearing aid

 SB 206 The “Hearing Aid Coverage for Children Act” will cover…

 •  A maxium of $3,000 per hearing impaired ear every 48 months

 •  Includes reimbursement for hearing aids and non implated BAHAs, the cost of ear molds, repair parts, replacement parts & FM modulation systems

 •  Coverage will be effective January 1, 2018

•  Applies only to individual or group plans*, excluding companies with 10 or fewer employees

*Many larger companies decide to self-insure their plans, and these plans can not be jurisdicted at the state level.  They are subject to the exclusive jurisdiciton of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974.  However, if you work for a larger company, we urge you to take a copy of our bill and ask them to expand their plan.  In other states, where the bill has passed, these larger companies are readily updating their polices.  If you would like our help with this contact us at info@letgeorgiahear.org.
