Massachusetts Governor Signs Hearing Aid Insurance Mandate

On Tuesday, Gov.
Deval Patrick signed H.B. 52 into law, requiring insurance coverage for
children’s hearing aids. Details about coverage will be specified in the
regulations which will be developed
before the law takes effect on Jan. 1, 2013. The bill was sponsored by
Rep. Sean Garballey and many other legislative supporters, including the
71 original co-sponsors that worked tirelessly on behalf of children
who are deaf and hard of hearing in Massachusetts.
