Hearing Help For Missourians

Current Missouri law allows Medicaid payments to cover the cost of hearing aids for eligible low-income children, pregnant women, and visually-impaired people. A Missouri House bill would expand coverage to include hearing aids and cochlear  implants for all eligible low-income residents. Representative Cameron Parker, a Republican from southeast Missouri’s Campbell, is sponsoring the bill that could come up for House debate today (Tuesday).

During a hearing on the bill, no one spoke in opposition to the proposal.
