VETERANS PRESS: Hey veterans, did you know you may qualify for free hearing aids?

To receive hearing aids through VA, you must first register at the health Administration/enrollment section of the VA Medical Center of your choice. The following documents are usually needed at the time of registration: a copy of the veteran’s DD214, driver’s license and health insurance (if available). There are several ways to enroll:
• In person at any VA Medical Center or Clinic
• Online at www.va.gov/health-care/how-to-apply/ by filling out the Form 10-10EZ.
• By mailing completed Form 10-10EZ to the medical center of your choice (please be sure to sign your application or it cannot be processed for enrollment)
Once registered (or if already registered), you may schedule an appointment at the Audiology and Speech Pathology Clinic for an evaluation of your hearing. The audiologist will make a clinical determination on the need for hearing aids and/or other hearing assistive devices. If hearing aids are recommended and fit, the hearing aids, repairs and future batteries will all be at no charge to you, as long as you maintain VA eligibility for care.
For more information, go to VeteransHelpnet.com, see the “North Idaho Resource Directory” in the Veterans Press or contact the Kootenai County Veteran Services and Benefits office at 208-446-1090.
