Will the VA cover hearing aids?
I seem to have a hearing problem. I believe I need a hearing aid. Will the V A cover me?
If a veteran is enrolled in the [VA Health System] (http://www1.va.gov/health/) and is service connected at 10 percent for any disability, he/she may be eligible for VA coverage of hearing aids and glasses from their local V.A.
[Non-service-connected veterans] (http://www.vba.va.gov/bln/21/pension/vetpen.htm) may be eligible for hearing aids if low income or they may need to pay three co-payments of $50 each for three visits (total $150) for high quality hearing aids that would cost thousands from private vendors.
VA health benefits are open to all Veterans. Family members may also be eligible to receive benefits. There is no monthly premium for VA care, but there may be a co-pay. To learn more, visit the VA website.
