Oppose the controversial hearing aid bill 
Please join the New York State Speech-Language-Hearing Association (NYSSLHA) in opposing a bill that would allow for the for-profit sale of hearing aids by otolaryngologists who employ an audiologist or hearing aid dispenser. This legislation would repeal a long-standing prohibition on physician self-referral of hearing devices designed to protect consumers from the possibility that personal financial gain could interfere with the physician's independent medical judgment. It also undermines the mission of agencies such as CHC, encouraging a monopoly by large, for-profit physician practices that would interfere with ongoing audiology practices.
