Hearing Aid Assistance Tax Credit Act

On November 13, 2013, Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) and Senator Dean Heller (R-NV) introduced S. 1694, the Hearing Aid Assistance Tax Credit Act. This legislation provides a tax credit of up to $500 per device toward the purchase of a hearing aid, available once every five years.

The American Academy of Audiology enthusiastically supports this measure and will continue efforts to assist in passage of the legislation. You can help to gain support for this initiative by visiting the Legislative Action Center on the Academy’s Web site. Here you can locate your member of Congress and send an editable form letter urging support for S. 1694.

Direct Access

On June 3, 2011, Direct Access (H.R 2140) was Introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives. H.R. 2140, the Medicare Hearing Health Care Enhancement Act of 2011 is identical to H.R. 3024 and was introduced by Congressman Mike Ross (D-AR) who was  joined by 11 original cosponsors.

H.R. 2140, if passed, will eliminate the need for Medicare patients to obtain a physician referral prior to visiting an audiologist for an evaluation.

It is vital that you contact your Representatives in Congress today to encourage him/her to support this critical piece of legislation. Progress of the bill may be tracked here
