    I need hearing aids

    I badly need hearing aids due to working on jets in the Navy. The VA says I don't qualify for any kind of medical aid through the VA. So I need hearing aids and all I find are aids that are $1,000 and up each. I cannot afford that but I need to be able to hear. Are there any alternatives for me? I don't understand why amplifiers ar so expensive.

    Not sure why they're expensive. I wear hearing aid (been deaf since birth).

    You can contact your state's Department of Rehabilitation and see if they can help you to get a hearing aid (or a pair) at no charge. Tell them you really need them for your job.

    Hope it helps.

    I just read where the VA is now covering the cost of hearing aids. You may want to check with them again. It seemed as if this was a newly added benefit. HOPE SO!!
