Hearing Aid Assistance to Individuals with Disabilities and the Elderly

Under a program called, “Hearing Aid Assistance to the Aged and Disabled (HAAAD),” the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) offers hearing aid assistance to individuals with disabilities and the elderly. Individuals who qualify may be eligible for a $100 reimbursement upon purchasing a hearing aid.

If you are currently enrolled in the Pharmaceutical Assistance to the Aged and Disabled Program (PAAD), you must complete a HAAAD application and submit the following documentation:

1. A receipt for the purchase of your hearing aid
2. A written statement from your physician attesting to the medical necessity for obtaining a hearing aid

If you are not currently enrolled in the PAAD program, you must complete a PAAD application as well. This is needed to verify your age or disability status, state residency, and annual income. You may be eligible if you have only limited or partial coverage for insurance. Those individuals receiving Medicaid or full coverage through other insurance or retirement benefits are NOT eligible for HAAAD.
