The brave women and men who have stepped up to serve our country deserve our best. At Lifestyle Hearing of Utah, we have enrolled in the Veterans Affairs Community Care program to help provide the highest level of service to veterans in our community.
Here we review how veterans can get access to hearing services through the VA in general and what they can do to sign up for Community Care services. We have also provided a few links to some websites for these services to help you more easily access the information you need to get help for your hearing loss.
The following information comes from the Veterans Administration website. Please follow the links below if you desire further information.
To receive hearing aids through government programs, you must first register at the health administration/enrollment section of the VA Medical Center of your choice.
