Coverage for Hearing Aids


On April 10, 2020, Gov. Northam signed SB 423 into law. The new law requires group health insurance policies to provide coverage for hearing aids and related services for children 18 years of age or younger when recommended by an otolaryngologist. The coverage must include one hearing aid per hearing-impaired ear, up to a cost of $1,500, every 24 months. The mandate applies to policies issued or renewed on and after January 1, 2021.
