The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) will conduct a public hearing to receive comments on the proposed amendment to §354.1231 under Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 354, Subchapter A, Division 15, Hearing Aid Services, Benefits and Limitations.
HHSC proposes to limit coverage for hearing aids for adults to one hearing aid when there is hearing loss in both ears. Hearing loss in one ear (for adults) will no longer qualify for coverage of a hearing aid.
Written Comments. Written comments on the proposed amendments to the rule may be submitted to Armandina Zamora-Torres, Medicaid/CHIP Division, Health and Human Services Commission, at P.O. Box 85200, Austin, TX 78708-5200, Mail Code H-390 91X; by fax to 512-249-3707; or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org within 30 days of publication of this proposal in the Texas Register.
People with disabilities who wish to attend the meeting and require auxiliary aids or services should contact Leigh A. Van Kirk at 512-491-2813 at least 72 hours before the meeting so appropriate arrangements can be made.
