Speak Up About Healthy Hearing!

May 16, 2012

Can you hear us now?  Coast2Coast Rx applauds the efforts of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) for increasing awareness and promoting healthy treatments during Better Hearing and Speech Month.

According to the ASHA, hearing loss affects more than nine million Americans over the age of 65, making it one of the most prevalent chronic conditions in the United States. Treatment and assistive technology can drastically improve the quality of life for those who experience problems with speaking, understanding, or hearing.1

In a survey conducted in 2011 by AARP and ASHA, 63 percent of poll respondents stated that the limits of their health insurance, concerns about cost, and lack of health insurance were reasons that prevented them from getting adequate treatment for their hearing difficulties.2

We cannot let aging Americans and others with hearing problems suffer in silence. In its efforts to provide a universe of healthcare cost savings, Coast2Coast Rx has partnered with qualified audiology centers to offers a variety of discounts on hearing-related treatments and products.  If you or someone you know is lacking hearing care in their insurance plan, or has exhausted those benefits during a covered period of time, the Coast2Coast Rx card may be able to help them save money on out-of-pocket costs.
