Envoy Medical hears your frustration on lack of Medicare/Medicaid coverage for specialty hearing implants like the Esteem®. We support you and other advocates who continue to lobby Congress for better access to treatments that improve hearing health. The “hearing aid exclusion” within Medicare has denied many older adults with hearing loss access to hearing technologies and healthcare services that can help them remain healthy, connected, and able to care for themselves.
We owe it to our seniors, our community, and ourselves to address this issue before more untreated and undertreated hearing loss gives rise to other preventable and more serious healthcare costs. You can make a difference by making your voice heard by your elected Senators and Representatives.
We urge you to reach out to your members of Congress to ask them to support HR. 1118, the Medicare Hearing Aid Coverage Act of 2021 to remove the outdated hearing aid exclusion, and to promote better access to hearing technologies. If you are interested in receiving a template letter to ask your Members of Congress to support appropriate access and coverage by passing H.R. 1118, the Medicare Hearing Aid Coverage Act of 2021, please click on this link to send us an email and we will follow-up with you.
