Federal Trade Commission on hearing aids

This article was originally published in The Gray Sheet

Executive Summary

FTC settles with seven hearing-aid sellers after charging that they placed "false and deceptive claims in Yellow Pages advertisements that Medicare...helps cover the cost of hearing aids or hearing tests." FTC says Medicare does not cover the cost of hearing aids or of hearing tests when they are performed for the purpose of prescribing hearing aids. The sellers signed consent orders that prohibit them from misrepresenting any medical insurance coverage in the future. The orders also require the sellers to correct future ads and post corrected information in their offices.
