HB 490/SB 552 are bills that would require insurance companies to cover the cost of hearing aids and cochlear implants for children in Texas. This would be a HUGE benefit to families with hearing-impaired children in Texas.
We are excited to announce that HB 490 passed yesterday with overwhelming support in the House! Thank you to all the parents, professionals and friends who worked so hard on behalf of this bill. Now the bill will head to the Senate and hopefully go through a quick hearing in the Senate Business and Commerce Committee. We will provide an update on next steps soon!
