The cost of hearing aids should not limit a child from having the opportunity to learn to listen and talk. Thanks to donors, charitable foundations, and legislative support, we are able to offer financial assistance for qualifying pediatric patients with hearing loss through June 30, 2021. Financial Stewardship is of the upmost importance, which is why the insurance benefits available for our patients are utilized before the foundation pays any charges associated with hearing aids and/or services.
As a foundation, we provide the first set of hearing aids to all newly diagnosed infants and children in Oklahoma up to age 11 at no cost to the family. In addition to hearing aids, we provide all audiology services at no cost to the family for children with hearing loss under the age of 3 to families in Oklahoma. Financial assistance is awarded based on the Financial Aid Policy established by the Hearts for Hearing Board of Directors and is re-evaluated annually based on available funding.
Other Hearts for Hearing pediatric services and programs may also be covered through our financial aid assistance policy. To be considered for the Hearts for Hearing Financial Assistance Program, you will need to complete an application, upload the following documents and pay the $25 application fee through a Docusign link.
