Oppose Senate Bill 700 Sections 12-15, which would harm seniors and businesses
Dear Senator [Decision Maker],
I am writing to urge you to oppose or amend Senate Bill 700 (Sections 12-15), a telehealth bill that includes problematic provisions permitting the online sales of hearing aids and the removal of essential hearing testing protocols before any hearing aid is purchased. This provision in the bill would remove the long standing restriction on mail order sales of hearing aids, which would sacrifice patient safety and risk financial harm to consumers. The provision would also allow patients to purchase hearing aids from any licensee without first being tested for hearing loss, which contradicts best practices in the U.S. and Internationally, and would cause negative health outcomes.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP][Your Email]
