SB 68 is still very much alive. We have an extension until May 31st, this means we need to really ramp up the calls, emails, letters and faxes to the Illinois Senators.
Take a look at the current sponsors:
These are the Senators who believe that the time is now to provide insurance coverage to Illinois residents of all ages. Just recently, Arkansas became the very first state to pass a bill requiring insurance coverage for hearing aids for Arkansas residents of all age. Other states are beginning to draft bills to pass similar coverage. We are gathering momentum, but we need a huge push from each and every one of you reading this.
Call each of the Senators above and thank them for sponsoring this bill. Then call YOUR local Senator and tell them to please co-sponsor this bill and support it.
