I am, so you should be. Im not at 0% for hearing loss, I think im at 10% for high frequency loss and 10% for tinnitus. My Resounds have a white noise circuit so I wear them more for the tinnitus masking than I do for any actual need for hearing loss.

(I AM NOT A RATER- I work the claims BEFORE they are rated, annotating medical evidence in your records, VA and Legal documents,  and DA/DD forms- basically a paralegal/vso/etc except that I also evaluate your records based on Caluza and try to justify and schedule the exams that you go to based on whether or not your records have enough in them to warrant those)

I am rated 10% for Tinnitus, 0% for hearing loss and qualify for hearing aids. I've had mine since 2010 and I'm getting a new pair next week.

I believe you can take a VA Hearing test and the Audiologist can decide if you need hearing aids based on the testing, if your 0% sc or not.

They usually will make impressions of the inside of your ear canal, and send off for the aids to be made for your ears and call you when they come in  and you go in for adjustments & use of care and cleaning depending on the brand of hearing aids.

Veterans can recieve new hearing aids after 4 years  but will need to retest. 

I am on my 4 th set  since 1998 bout time to get new ones..before I've always had the BTE (Behind the Ear) but I understand they have newer technology now and have the BTE but have a small wire with a sponge feeling amplified devise on the end  some how? you can't tell its there and they place the sponge type devise inside you ear..its smaller that the normal  glass impression they make that fit inside the ear (mine took some getting use to and made my ears sore  so with these new type hearing aids I am going to ask for when I go retake the hearing test.

I never could see the reason for the retake hearing test  b/c hearing is not ever suppose to improve  but maybe gets worse   so maybe that's why they require the retesting?
