Unfortunately, getting hearing aids is not like getting eye glasses or reading glasses. The hearing aid dispensers and audiologist offices take a markup of 117% on the sale of hearing aids. This number comes from the association of hearing aids manufacturer. It is available on their web site. No secrets. You can help us, the hearing impaired community, by making a legislation on the sales of hearing aids from Audiologist practices and hearing aid dispensers. I hope that in your decision making group to do what is best for people who needs hearign aids, there is at least one hearing impaired people. France Campbell
