Oppose the deregulation of hearing aid dealers in HB 2697

Dear [Decision Maker],

I am writing to urge you to oppose the deregulation of Hearing Aid Dealers, proposed in HB 2697. The deregulation of the industry will have long-lasting, negative effects on individuals with hearing loss, who will suffer harm through the loss of qualified providers, the unscrupulous activities of unregulated salespeople, and unknowingly forgo safe and effective care without the maintenance of professional and clinical standards.

Please reject the deregulation of hearing aid dealers, which are regulated in all 50 states and need to maintain licensure in order to participate in insurance, and deliver hearing healthcare services through state and federal healthcare programs.
