MONTCLAIR STATE UNIVERSITY

Montclair State University is home to the only audiology doctoral program in the State of New Jersey. The University is please to collaborate with Hearing Charities of America/Sertoma and the NJ DDHH in the New Jersey Hearing Aid Project. Our clinical staff and graduate students will evaluate donated hearing aids and house reconditioned aids for distribution to participating audiologists across New Jersey. The MSU Center for Audiology will also dispense hearing aids to individuals who qualify through the NJ DDHH application process.

THE NEW JERSEY DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES DIVISION OF THE DEAF AND HARD OF HEARING

The New Jersey Department of Human Services Division of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (NJ DDHH) is pleased to partner with Hearing Charities of America/Sertoma and Montclair State University for the purpose of providing reconditioned hearing aids to low income individuals with needs.

Although there are several programs that offer assistance, the vast majority of people who need hearing aids do not have them due to the high cost. The division receives thousands of inquiries for information, but one of the most common requests is from those seeking hearing aid assistance. Very few insurance companies provide coverage. Many people with hearing loss are over 65 and Medicare also does not provide coverage. Therefore, it is anticipated that this program will help bridge the gap. The division’s participation in the project includes establishing eligibility guidelines, and determining which applicants will be approved to obtain a hearing aid.
