Several assistance programs exist for people who need help paying for a hearing aid, according to the AARP. However, the type of aid a person qualifies for will depend on his circumstances.
Hearing aid financial assistance programs are available for certain military veterans, and federal employees and their families can obtain assistance through some medical insurance plans, reports the AARP. Some states offer help paying for hearing aids through the Affordable Care Act, according to HearingLoss.org, though each state has its own age requirements and funding cap.
Nonprofit group, Sertoma, operates hearing aid recycling programs in Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma and Nebraska, according to Sertoma.org. The Starkey Hearing Foundation also provides assistance via its website.
