​Hearing Aid Coverage for Children Program - Family Resources

Effective July 1, 2021, DHCS introduced a California state-only benefit for children, ages 0-17, who are otherwise ineligible for Medi-Cal, and with a household income up to 600 percent of the federal poverty level. This benefit is available to children with no health insurance or whose existing health insurance does not cover hearing aids and related services. A valid hearing aid prescription from an otolaryngologist or physician, or a referral from an audiologist, otolaryngologist, or physician is required for program enrollment.
