We am so happy to announce that SB206 has passed in the Georgia House of Representatives 155-5. Within a month, the bill will move to Governor Nathan Deal's desk to be signed into law.
Starting with the new insurance year, private insurers will be required to cover the cost of hearing aids for children in Georgia! Huge congratulations to my friends at Let Georgia Hear!
Your support has been amazing, and we are so grateful.
Even with this great victory, there is a lot of work left to do. There are still 29 states in the U.S. where children's hearing aids are not covered by private insurance and millions of kids living in the third world who have no access to the hearing care they need.
