Connecticut Hearing Aid Mandate Expands Coverage


In June 2015, Connecticut passed legislation that requires health plans to cover hearing aids for members of all ages.

Harvard Pilgrim currently covers one hearing aid every 24 months for members in Connecticut aged 13 and under. Effective January 1, 2016, in keeping with the recent mandate, the age limit restriction of 13 and under will be removed and coverage for hearing aids will be expanded to include members of all ages for all of our fully insured plans in Connecticut. Please note that the limit of one hearing aid every 24 months will still apply.
