I retired in in 1990 with 20yrs. as a HMC. Since that time, I have realized more and more that my hearing has been affected. Recently, I received an audiogram and was evaluated with high frequency hearing loss bad enough to warrant getting a hearing aid. It was brought to my attention that these things can cost (minimally) around $900.00. More, if you get one with all the bells and whistles. Anyone know where I stand with posibly getting some of the cost for a basic hearing aid defrayed by the VA? If I am barking up the wrong tree, please let me know. J. Guido, HMC,Ret.usn.
