Restore Medicaid 2018
*** Take Action ***

Our new flyer calling for Washington’s State Medicaid plan to restore coverage of hearing aids for adults is being distributed to legislators and many other people. Please read the flyer, write to or visit your state legislators, and make sure they know why you believe that hearing aids are the essential way to treat hearing loss. Vulnerable adults who rely on Medicaid for their health coverage should not lack access to hearing health care
