Deaf & Hard of Hearing

Ear Community
Ear Community is a charitable organization that helps individuals who were born with Microtia and Atresia.  If you need help obtaining a BAHA (bone conduction hearing device) and have been denied by your insurance plan or cannot afford to purchase one, please apply online.

Gift of Hearing Foundation
Working closely with the medical community, the Gift of Hearing Foundation will provide financial support to help a select number of economically disadvantaged patients receive cochlear implants. We will use these selected cases to highlight the gaps in reimbursement for cochlear implants and advocate for change. We can provide financial assistance to those whose insurance coverage will not provide for the cost of CI Implants

Hearing Loss Association of America
At the state level, we empower individuals with skills and knowledge, and we create a caring local community to connect people with hearing loss, their family and friends, and hearing health professionals.

Lions Club, How the Affordable Hearing Aid Project Works
Local Lions Clubs work with individuals to determine their eligibility (based on  income) and arrange testing by a partner hearing care professional. The Lions club communicates with Lions AHAP to request and arrange shipping of the hearing aid(s). The selected hearing care professional then ensures proper fit of the aid, and provides follow-up care to make adjustments as needed.

Seattle Children’s Hospital Financial Assistance Program
Seattle Children’s Financial Assistance Program (known as “Charity Care” under state and federal law) is for medically needed services. The program may be able to help even if you have insurance. It is based on family size and income.

Sertoma International
A national organization committed to civil service, Sertoma works with nonprofit organizations, hospitals, and school systems to fund hearing aids and other assistive technology for hearing loss. Contact your local chapter for more information.

Starkey Foundation
If you or someone you know is struggling with hearing loss and unable to afford hearing aids, call (800)328-8602 or email, and a Hear Now representative will be in touch with you. Some families have also found success by contacting the individual companies who produce the hearing technology and asking if they have financial assistance programs.
