Hearing Aid Coverage for Children Program

Does your child need a hearing aid?

DHCS introduced a new California state-only benefit for children, ages 0-17, who are otherwise not eligible for Medi-Cal, and with a household income up to 600 percent of the federal poverty level, effective July 1, 2021. This benefit will be available to children with no health insurance or whose existing health insurance does not cover hearing aids and related services. Referral or valid hearing aid prescription from an audiologist, otolaryngologist, or physician will be required.

Benefits include:

  • Hearing aid(s) and hearing aid replacement
  • Hearing aid supplies/accessories
  • Hearing aid-related audiology services
  • Other related post-evaluation services
