Taunton mom played key role in getting children’s hearing aid approved by Legislature

A Taunton mom was among a group of advocates who pushed for a children’s
hearing aid bill that was approved last week by the Legislature and is
now under review as Gov. Deval Patrick decides on whether to sign it
into law.

Known as House Bill
No. 52 and titled “An Act to Provide Access to Hearing Aids for
Children,” the bill has been kicked around in the State House for three
legislative sessions. If signed into law, it would mandate that private
health insurers provide coverage for up to $2,000 of the cost of any
single hearing aid for minors up to the age of 21 every 36 months.
