I have poor hearing. Health insurance does not generally cover hearing aids. I have had several major plans over the years. None of them have ever covered hearing aids.
I had to purchase a pair of inexpensive analog aids from Hearing Help Express. They work well if the environment doesn't have too much background noise or the sounds levels don't change from loud to soft or back too much. (No automatic level control).
Unfortunately, I'm a school teacher so the above conditions are rarely met. :(
