If you are on our Facebook Group and/or Page you saw that Parents of Deaf and Hard of Hearing children, Deaf and Hard of Hearing Adults, AND Professionals all showed up in Sacramento to show their support for AB 598 at the Assembly Health Committee hearing on Tuesday April 24th. Thank you to everyone who was able to attend AND To those who called /wrote letters in support of the bill. 
The measure passed committee unanimously! laughing
*If AB #598 passes, insurance companies will be required to provide hearing aid coverage for minors.
The next step is the Assembly Appropriations Committee! Stay tuned for more information on how you can help. 
If you live in San Diego we need your help within the next two weeks. Please contact if you live in San Diego and have a DHH child birth to 18 years old who wears hearing aids. 
Thank you for your support!
