Georgia

If you’ve ever boarded the midnight train and found yourself seated next to the devil as he goes down to Georgia, you might have found yourself wondering how the state’s audiological healthcare holds up. Wonder no more!

How many test centers are in Georgia?

159
There are 159 audiologists throughout the state of Georgia and 147 hearing aid centers

What government support do I have?

Firstly, simply put, Georgia’s Medicaid does not cover hearing aids.

Secondly, Georgia’s ACA coverage similarly neglects hearing aids, tests, or related services.

Evidently, Georgia isn’t exactly at the forefront of audiological healthcare for its citizens. At least it has an abundance of sweet, juicy peaches.

What support do my children have?

Finally, some good news! Children in Georgia are pretty well equipped when it comes to hearing healthcare – as long as they’re insured. Insurance should cover $3,000 worth of hearing aids per ear every 48 months, which isn’t too shabby.

Audiology Doctoral Programs Offered in Georgia

Unfortunately, the state of Georgia doesn’t offer any doctorate programs for audiology.

Overall

Georgians don’t have stellar legislature when it comes to accessing appropriate audiological healthcare. Maybe sometime in the future, it’ll experience a revolution in its hearing aid world. When that day comes, watch this space!
