*ASHA Updates to over-the-counter hearing aids*

  • OTC hearing aids are available for consumers! It is important for us to remember OTC may be an answer for individuals with mild to moderate hearing loss (over the age of 18 years) and not for everyone.
  • SHAA members can remind our friends, families, patients, and consumers that an audiological evaluation is the first step to purchasing any device, as we know there are varying degrees and types of losses and well as medical interventions that may be necessary prior to device fitting.
  • ASHA is a great resource for OTC FAQ and talking points with patients www.asha.org
  • If you have questions, here are quick links with resources from ASHA
