ACDHH is opposed to hearing aids being sold over-the-counter. We are concerned that these devices will be used on children and may not actually benefit a person with hearing loss. People with hearing loss should see a licensed hearing healthcare professional for a hearing test and to screen for any red flag conditions such as earwax, a tumor, infection, sudden hearing loss, conductive loss, or unilateral hearing loss. The legislation, which was attached to an FDA must-pass bill, has passed both the U.S. House and the U.S. Senate and now awaits the signature of the President. Please let the President know what you think about hearing aids being sold over-the-counter. https://www.whitehouse.gov/contact/write-or-call.
