Sixteen states require health benefit plans to pay for children’s hearing aids. Only three states—Arkansas, New Hampshire and Rhode Island—require coverage for children and adults. And Wisconsin requires coverage for both hearing aids and cochlear implants for children.
Requirements vary by state for ages covered, amount of coverage, benefit period and provider qualifications. Read more detailed information on each state’s requirements.
