Over-the-counter hearing aids now available for millions of Americans
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – On Monday, millions of Americans will be able to buy hearing aids over the counter, without a prescription.
Prior to the new FDA rules taking effect, hearing aids cost on average between $4,000-5,000. They also required a trip to a licensed audiologist.
Now, consumers who need them will be able to pick them up at retailers like Best Buy, Walmart and CVS.
Hearing-impaired Nebraskans can find more information at the Nebraska Commission for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (NCDHH) website.
