    I have hearing loss in both ears. I wear one hearing aid because the other one stopped working. My aids were paid for by the state I live in shortly after I became disabled (2008). Since I have become 67, the state will not help with my medical costs unless I have over $1200 in costs every month. I am grateful that I am not sick enough to incur that much in medical expenses every month, but, on a fixed income…I cannot afford to replace nor repair my aids which cost almost $3000 (in 2008), I am sure there are others who need these devices but cannot afford them.
