Hearing Aids

To receive hearing aids through VA, you must first register at the health Administration/enrollment section of the VA Medical Center of your choice.  The following documents are usually needed at the time of registration:  a copy of the Veteran's DD214, driver's license and health insurance (if available).  There are several ways to enroll:

  • In person at any VA Medical Center or Clinic
  • Online by filling out the Form 10-10EZ.
  • By mailing completed Form 10-10EZ to the Medical Center of your choice (please be sure to sign your application or it cannot be processed for enrollment)

Once registered (or if already registered), a referral to the Audiology and Speech Pathology Clinic may be requested through your assigned VA Primary Care Provider.  The audiologist will complete an evaluation and make a clinical determination on the need for hearing aids and/or other hearing assistive devices.  If you are eligible, your hearing aids, repairs, and future batteries will all be at no charge to you.
