I got a quick appointment (set for just 4 days after my initial phone call) to a local VA audiology office. I arrived 7 minutes prior to my appointment time. 5 minutes later I was called into the testing room. The testing tech was very professional and explained everything. The test results confirmed my moderate loss in my left ear, and minor loss, barely worthy of an aid in my right ear. She ordered 2 Phonak aids - not sure of the model - but they will be rechargeable and work with my Android Bluetooth. I was surprised there was no co-pay or deductible. Needless to say, I was impressed with the service. The aids are on order and will arrive for fitting and testing in three weeks.
