If you know a child who does not have sufficient coverage from other entities to cover the high cost of hearing aids, please READ and SHARE! 

The Hearing Aid Assistance Program of Indiana (HAAPI) is now available to help families of school-age children who need hearing aids. Since most health insurance plans do not cover the full cost of hearing aids, HAAPI (pronounced: happy) is provided to support the amplification needs of Hoosier children who are deaf or hard of hearing.  

Children with hearing loss are eligible for HAAPI, if all of the following are true: 

· they are enrolled in kindergarten through 12th grade

· a physician has provided medical clearance

· they have not received funding from HAAPI in the previous three years

· they do not have sufficient coverage through public or private insurance 

All hearing aids purchased by HAAPI must be prescribed, fitted, and dispensed by an audiologist who is licensed in Indiana and who has registered to participate in HAAPI. The program is also currently accepting applications for Participating Audiologists. 

If you have any questions, please contact HAAPI Administrators by phone at 317-828-0211 or info@HAAPIndiana.org.
