HearUSA - Hearing Care Program

HearUSA administers the Ohio Laborers hearing aid benefit. This is a network of qualified hearing care providers committed to delivering the highest quality of services at discounted prices. Their providers offer a basic annual audiologic assessment, including air conduction testing, bone conduction testing, and word recognition measures at a substantial discount. Members receive a full explanation of the finds of these hearing tests. Additionally, your HearUSA provider will assist you in recognizing factors which may damage your hearing and will provide helpful solutions.
