  • 3 in 1,000 infants are born with hearing loss, and most insurance companies do not cover hearing aids for children. Hearing aids can cost as much as $6,000 per pair.
  • Children with hearing loss who receive proper amplification and habilitation services have been shown to have language skills similar to their hearing peers years later.
  • 20 states already require insurance companies to cover children's hearing aids.
