WPR: Why Hearing Aids Are So Expensive And The Push To Lower Their Cost
A recent executive order by President Biden aims to limit corporate power and lower consumer prices – including for hearing aids. We look at why hearing aids are so expensive and how Biden’s move may affect both patients and audiologists.
UW-Stevens Point Audiology faculty members Rachel Craig and Becky Henning were guests on Wisconsin Public Radio Central Time on July 22 to discuss the ramifications of the order and the benefits of visiting a hearing health professional. Callers of the show shared their personal stories and asked questions about how hearing aids work, the cost and the future of hearing aids.
