Dear Carlie,

My husband is a WWII Navy Veteran and he needs two hearing aids. I just got unemployed and we cannot afford to buy these hearing aids.

Do you know how we can get these hearing aids?

Please help. He's needed these fifteen years ago.

Thank you for your help.

First of all we just got my husbands hearing aid. You need to make sure he is enrolled in the health care program. I took my husband to the VA Hospital, filled out the forms and in about 2 weeks he got his card. Once that is done, he needs to be seen in the primary care clinic. In our case we chose the Community Based Clinic. When we went for the appointment I told them he was having hearing issues and they referred him to the hearing clinic. We went to the clinic a few weeks later and he was evaluated. He had left side hearing loss and tinnitis. They ordered the appliance and within the month he had it and is wearing it. If this was due to his service you just need to file a fully developed claim. and they will call him in for a C and P exam. That is the key...gather your medical records, his hearing history, identify and have proof of service related injury. Just time consuming but not impossible.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
