Unfortunately, there are millions of older Americans with hearing loss that go without needed hearing aids because they simply can’t afford them. Digital hearing aids are expensive, typically costing between $1,000 and $3,000 per ear, and most insurance companies including Medicare don’t cover them.

But there’s good news! Today, there are a number of organizations that offer hearing aid assistance programs to help those in need. Most programs have income requirements that you’ll need to meet to be eligible, and they all require a hearing evaluation by an audiologist or hearing instrument specialist, which in most cases you’ll have to pay for yourself. Here’s where to look for help.

•Lions Affordable Hearing Aid Project

Provided by the Lions Clubs International Foundation and offered through many local Lions clubs throughout the U.S., this program provides the opportunity to purchase new, behind-the-ear, digital hearing aids manufactured by Rexton, for $200 per aid. Contact your local Lions Club to see if they participate in this program. Visit lionsclubs.org or call 800-747-4448 to find your local club.

•Help America Hear Program

All applicants must be referred by an EarQ hearing professional (call 866-432-7500 or see earq.com to find one) and pay a $75 non-refundable application fee. Visit foundationforsightandsound.org or call 631-366-3461 for more information.

•Audient Program

This nonprofit service helps people purchase new, digital hearing aids at discounts ranging between 30 and 75 percent. Go to audientalliance.org or call 877-283-4368 for more information.

•HearNow

To learn more call 800-328-8602, or visit sotheworldmayhear.org/hearnow where you can download an application.
