Ask Aviva #13: What do I do if the hearing test is only in 6 months?

Dear Aviva,

My hearing aids are beginning to go, and I think I’m in need of a new pair. However, when I called the number to make an appointment, they told me they only had openings in 6 months? What do I do!

Dear Hard of Hearing,

It seems as if some of the kupot have reduced their subcontractors for hearing tests. In fact, Maccabi Jerusalem only has 1 clinic for hearing tests! However, if you have access to a car or adequate public transportation, check out clinics in nearby cities. You’re not bound by your address in terms of where you can go for an appointment. If they have an opening sooner, you can go!

Yours in health,
