HLAA Makes News as Over-the-Counter Hearing Aids Move Closer to Store Shelves
On Tuesday, August 16, The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released the final rule for hearing aids sold directly to consumers, without a prescription. This will open the market to a new class of devices for adults with mild to moderate hearing loss.
Executive Director Barbara Kelley is featured on many top media outlets as the news breaks. She talks about why HLAA supports this additional pathway to hearing health care.
While these devices aren’t for everyone, it’s an exciting step to help some treat hearing loss sooner.
