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.

To answer your question both should or will happen. Now I see that you replied to a very old post instead of starting your own post.  In the future if you decide to post a question please be aware of where you are on the board. I am not trying to correct you, I am informing you that when you start your own post you will get more eyes to view it and most likely more responses.
