Over-the-Counter Hearing Aids Getting Attention

OVER-THE-COUNTER HEARING AIDS ARE GETTING ATTENTION
The introduction of recent legislation to create a new class of hearing aids that would be available over the counter (OTC) is starting to bring greater attention to the issue of affordability and accessibility of hearing health care.Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), who led the introduction of the Over-the-Counter Hearing Aid Act of 2017, were recently published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) discussing the need for this legislation.

And on April 6, the Boston Globe published a front-page article talking about the new legislation.
