Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Here health insurance won't cover hearing aids (not even Medicare). It seems they think it belongs to the category of "lifestyle" choices.

Since a good quality hearing aid costs $3000+ this leaves many people without. There is a big market in semi-useless devices that sell for $200-300.

These differences don't get talked about when comparing plans from different countries. Our plans are so irrational people don't even have a baseline on which to make sane evaluations.
