August 14, 2012—(from the Westfield News) Gov. Deval Patrick signed a bill into law yesterday that will give some financial relief to children in need of hearing aids.

The new law mandates that insurance carriers cover up to $2,000 of the cost of any single hearing aid for minors up to age 21. The Massachusetts Hearing Aids for Children Coalition says parents often pay out of pocket for hearing aids prescribed by doctors, which are replaced at least every three to five years.

According to the Coalition, 150 children born in Massachusetts each year are diagnosed with hearing loss.
