Hearing loss is the third most common health problem in the U.S.; in fact, about 48 million Americans have some degree of hearing loss. Did you know that people with hearing loss typically wait an average of seven years before seeking help? Hearing loss can come on so gradually you may not even notice it. The good news is that most loss can be easily treated with hearing aids.

Hearing aid discounts are available to Johns Hopkins faculty, staff, and bargaining unit members as a value-added feature to the university's current benefits offerings. Here's where to find them.
