Hearing Industries Association (HIA) Applauds Introduction of Federal Legislation to Help People with Hearing Loss Get the Hearing Aids They Need
Date:11/14/2013

WASHINGTON, Nov. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Hearing Industries Association (HIA) strongly supports the Hearing Aid Assistance Tax Credit Act introduced by Senators Tom Harkin (D-IA) and Dean Heller (R-NV).

A 2013 study even suggested that hearing loss among older adults may be associated with faster rates of measurable cognitive decline.
