Amend HB 15 to improve children's access to insurance for hearing aids

Dear [Decision Maker],

A bill has been introduced in the Nebraska legislature, HB 15, that would require insurance coverage for children needing hearing devices. Unfortunately, it excludes hearing aid specialists from the list of covered providers which will significantly limit access, forcing many families to travel long distances to access care and possibly compromise existing patient-provider relationships that involve hearing aid specialists.



I urge you to modify HB 15 and add hearing aid specialists to the bill, so that Nebraska families can access covered hearing care through their provider of choice, whether that is an audiologist or hearing aid specialist.

Thank you for considering my views.

Sincerely,
