Howdy, for those of us who might suffer long term hearing loss accompanied by tinnatus, hearing aids are often prescribed to lessen the sound in the ear/brain. Problem is, hearing aids are very costly, $2,500 or more.
There are a couple of sources for financial and fitting support available. One is the Lions Club program, which recycles hearing aids, refurbishes them, and hands them out for about $150 or so each. You have to meet income guidelines, but they are pretty liberal. To see about this one call Lions Interational number at: 1‐866‐623‐9053
The other, which charges about $600 per for new aids if you qualify is Audient.
