Many veterans suffer some type of hearing loss, however unless that hearing loss is service-connected, the VA will not usually provide them hearing aids.
VA will provide hearing aids to the following veterans:
- Those with any service-connected disability
- Former Prisoners of War
- Purple Heart recipients
- Those rated permanently housebound or in need of regular aid and attendance.
- Those with hearing impairment resulting from diseases or a medical condition for which they are getting VA care or disability
- Those who have hearing impairment severe enough that it interferes with their ability to participate actively in their own medical treatment or daily living
