      Note: From the Hearing Test Website

 "The test was developed with funding from the National Institutes of Health and is provided on a nonprofit basis, although there is a small fee for it. The goal is to give you information that can help you decide whether you should seek a full-scale evaluation of your hearing."
The Test is free for AARP Members $5 for others.
​Remember: This test does not replace hearing tests done by hearing professionals, it merely provides additional information to those uncertain if they may have a hearing problem.
The Telephone Hearing Test
U.S. Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa)  introduced the Over-the-Counter Hearing Aid Act of 2016. The bill would allow some hearing aids to be sold "over the counter" (OTC). The hearing aids which would be included under the bill would be directed at people with mild to moderate hearing loss.

The FDA will be responsible for regulating the devices and also will draft guidelines for Personal Sound Amplification Devices (PSADs).
