Veterans are entitled to free hearing aids through the VA

Readers: As I mentioned a few weeks back, Nano Hearing Aids — nanohearingaids.com — was giving away 24 pairs of hearing aids through this column.

The company is in the process of contacting the people it picked for this giveaway based on their need and their inability to pay for hearing aids on their own. Here is the ninth lucky winner:

Winner 9

Nano: I hope you consider me for a pair of hearing aids in your giveaway promotion.

I am 59 years old and blind. It is important that I have good hearing to help make up for my lack of eyesight.

I have a pretty good HMO, but unfortunately, it does not cover hearing aids. I have been to an audiologist and have been fitted for a pair. But when it came time to purchase them, I couldn’t come up with the money I needed.

You’ll be doing my wife a great favor by providing me with hearing aids as I am constantly annoying her by asking, “What?” LOL.

Anyway, thank you for reading this and for considering me. C.M.

Special note to veterans

A lot of you vets have been asking for the free hearing aids that are being given away. And Nano Hearing Aids has been wonderful in granting as many of those requests as possible, along with giving devices out to non-veterans as well.

But people who have served in the Armed Forces should know that vets are entitled to free hearing aids through the federal Veterans Administration. You can get all the information you need at www.prosthetics.va.gov/psas/hearing_aids.asp. It’s a benefit you are entitled to, so go for it.
