Hearing Aid Prices

Just saw a news blurb about how many states and insurance companies aren’t covering hearing aids for kids. The average cost $3000 to $5000.

Now as an adult I’m a candidate for one for my right ear. That being said hearing aids are nothing but an amplifier, digital signal processor. The chip(s) in the device maybe cost a dollar, the injection molded plastic say another dollar. so profits go from $2998 to $4998. That’s ludicrous. even if we add in intellectual property of $100 it still comes nowhere close to what they charge. It reeks of that asshole Martin Skrelli who’s now serving a nice little prison term somewhere. We need to start jailing more CEO’s who rape the public.
