The hearing aids) will be loaned on a one time basis per child and includes one ear mold per hearing aid. The hearing aids available to use are Phonak Nios and Phonak Nadia. There are no financial eligibility requirements of the family and the term of the loan is for 6 months. Referrals to the GA HALB must be initiated through the UNHSI District Coordinator. In order to obtain a hearing aid for a child, the fitting audiologist must submit documentation and a completed application from the child’s caregiver. UNHSI is hoping the loaner bank will assist families by providing temporary hearing aids while children are waiting to receive personal amplification devices) through a third party payer such as insurance or another funding source.
