Hearing loss impacts more than 30 million Americans; government figures show that nearly one in five people 45-64 years old, one in three 65-74, and half of all adults 75 years old or older have a hearing loss. Yet, millions of people who have hearing loss don’t seek help for this condition, which, if left untreated, may have negative consequences on their quality of life.
American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) and HearUSA, one of the country’s largest hearing care providers, have launched a program to provide high-quality, cost-effective care to AARP’s members nationwide.
The program, which started in October 2009 in Florida and New Jersey and will reach all 50 states by the end of 2011, will offer AARP members state-of-the-art hearing aids, an extended warranty, battery supplies, aural rehabilitation, as well as on-going consultation with patients and their families.
