Official Documents About Hearing Aids & MediCal
We are providing information for you about the Governor’s proposal for the May revise. Hearing aids will continue to be covered up to 1500/year. Our lobbyist Tim Shannon and Amnon Shalev were instrumental in winning this battle. Thank you for all your letters and help. We need to make sure this stays in the budget but at least we are supporting what is in the budget instead of getting something changed. Please continue to write letters or make phone calls or send emails supporting the May revise language submitted by the Govenor. Review two important documents.
