New Hampshire’s House of Representatives passed a bill last week that would require insurers in the state to contribute up to $1,500 once every three years toward the cost of hearing aids. That bill will now head to their Senate.
Rep. Garballey is currently the sponsor of H910, which was mentioned on this blog following a November 4th hearing last year. H910, An Act to provide coverage for hearing aids for children, pushes insurers to help cover the cost of hearing aids for children under the age of 19. The bill has yet to make it to an executive session of the Joint Committee on Financial Services. We are hoping for the committee will rule H910 as “ought to pass” in the coming months so it can be voted on on the floor of our House of Representatives. Supporters of the bill can contact the chairs of the committee to encourage a favorable report. Their information can be found at mass.gov/legis.
