ADA and Woodford Reserve Roll Out the Barrel for MAASA

Reserve Your Reserve While Supplies Last!

Attention AuDvocates!

ADA is partnering with Woodford Reserve to bottle a select (and super AuDacious), signature barrel of Kentucky’s finest bourbon to support the Medicare Audiologist Access and Services Act (MAASA).

The MAASA barrel of Woodford Reserve Distiller’s Select contains enough custom-blended bourbon to fill only 180, 1-liter commemorative bottles—bottles that we have “Reserved” as a free gift for AuDvocates who donate $500 to the Eric N. Hagberg Advocacy Fund between now and October 27th (while supplies last).

Medicare Expansion for Hearing, Vision, and Dental Coverage: An Update from AAA, ADA, and ASHA

Policy recommendations to expand Medicare to include hearing, vision, and dental coverage have gained increasing support from influential members of Congress over the past few years. President Biden has also identified Medicare modernization as one of the key health care priorities for his Administration.

A legislative package to include expanded Medicare hearing services and hearing aids (as well as vision and dental services) is currently being drafted by key congressional committees for potential consideration by the full Congress in Fall 2021. This legislation may be considered under expedited budget reconciliation procedures that require a simple majority vote for passage in the U.S. Senate, potentially increasing its chances for approval.
