I have an old Oticon BTE HA which is on its last breath and getting tired of having it rebuilt every year. I'm thinking of getting the Oticon Sumo DM but I do not have the money in hand. I collect SSD and get medical assistance, plus medicare. Can medical assistance help pay for my HA? Or is there any programs such OVR or?? that can help me get a new HA? I heard about these programs but can't find them. If I have to, I will consider getting a loan to pay for my HA. Does anyone know who specializes in HA loans? I have profound hearing loss and need the powerful HA's to help me hear. I'm not interested in CI for now. Thanks.
