Hearing Aid Assistance

The District of Columbia Department of Health (DC Health) has a new program: the Hearing Aid Assistance Program (HAAP).

HAAP provides District residents with a reimbursement to offset the cost of purchasing a hearing aid not covered by insurance.

Residents that purchase/purchased a hearing aid between June 1, 2018 and September 1, 2020 can qualify to receive a reimbursement up to $500 per applicant depending on the out-of-pocket cost.

Eligible applicants must:

  • be a resident of the District of Columbia

  • be 0 – 14 years old (or 65 and older)

  • have a disability

  • have an annual gross household income of less than $100,000

To receive a reimbursement, the applicant must complete the HAAP application and provide:

  • proof of District residency

  • proof of income

  • proof of hearing aid purchase

  • verification of hearing impairment from a doctor

Reimbursement will be contingent upon the availability of funds, so apply as soon as you can.
