CALL TO ACTION: Send Your Support of SB 198
HHP needs your support to help move SB 198, which will be heard in the Senate Business and Professions Committee on April 17. Click here for a link to a sample letter you can use to send to Senator.Galgiani@Sen.ca.gov, Senator.Hill@Sen.ca.gov, and Senator.Bates@Sen.ca.gov.
HHP previously reported on its efforts to introduce legislation (SB 198: Senator Galgiani) that would expand the scope of practice for Hearing Aid Dispensers to include cerumen management, subject to specified requirements, including that the hearing aid dispenser demonstrates specified proficiency in cerumen management and that cerumen management only occur under physician and surgeon supervision. The bill would additionally authorize tympanometry as an allowable hearing test if it is only used for further referral to a physician and surgeon for diagnosis or treatment.
HHP had great responses to SB 198 during the Lobby Day event! HHP also advocated strongly for children’s access to hearing services.
