A big thank you to everybody who made Cheers & Beers for Ears 2018 a rousing success! The FHSR Associate Board could not have done it without the help of our fabulous supporters. We also want to thank Loukia, Dave Wzorek, and Out of Hours!
On August 23, 2018, Governor Bruce Rauner signed HB4516 requiring Illinois insurance companies to provide coverage for hearing instruments for children under the age of 18. The bill is effective immediately, which means that insurers will begin providing this benefit with policies issued after today. If you have a claim denied, please report it to the Illinois Department of Insurance.
