What's New?

The President has signed into law a bill that will allow hearing aids to be sold over-the-counter for persons who have mild-to-moderate hearing loss. However, hearing aids will not be available over-the-counter until the 2-to-3 year federal rulemaking process is completed. ACDHH remains opposed to hearing aids sold over-the-counter without the involvement of a licensed hearing healthcare provider, but since the bill has been signed, ACDHH will work diligently to ensure that the rules for this law are strong enough to protect consumer health and safety. Stay tuned to our E-News and this website for updates on this important issue.
