Plans Must Provide Hearing Aids for Children

On May 8, 2017, Gov. Deal signed SB 206 into law, amending section 33-24 of the Georgia Code. This law requires health plans to provide coverage for hearing aids to plan participants age 18 or younger, outlines the frequency with which such hearing aids must be replaced, addresses covered services and supplies and allows for the option of higher-priced devices.

This law is effective for health plans issued, delivered, executed or renewed in Georgia on or after Jan. 1, 2018.
