Hearing Aids are a necessity NOT a luxury

My name is Jennifer Dixon and I am the mother of a 1 year old son who suffers from Hearing Loss. Recently I found out that our insurance company MT State Blue Cross Blue Shield does not cover Hearing exams, procedures or Hearing Aids at all. I have done research and found that only SEVEN states in the USA demand that ALL insurance companies cover hearing aids, however my state- West Virginia- does not. The cost of my sons hearing aids are $2500 EACH, and something we can NOT afford. My husband also wears hearing aids and add the 2 pairs together- and its QUITE expensive. I am trying to collect signatures to turn over to our insurance company, The WV Govenor Joe Manchin, the WV Insurance Commissioner and our local paper to try to change our laws. Hearing is a NECESSITY, NOT A LUXURY!! In Canada and the United Kingdom, Hearing Aids are completely covered by insurance...shouldn't that be the same in America Please wont you sign this petition so we can DEMAND that our insurance companies start covering this Medical Equipment so desperately needed for development Thank you for taking the time to read this- and please sign, and tell everyone in your email box to sign too. Together- we CAN make a stand and a change! Please join my Myspace page www.myspace.com/hearingcoverageforall.com Jennifer Dixon
