About hearing aids in Georgia…

Baby with hearing aids

The Georgia Universal Newborn Hearing Screening and Intervention (UNHSI)
Program provides the Georgia Hearing Aid Loaner Bank (GA HALB):

The purpose of this program is to provide temporary hearing aids for children with hearing loss, who are birth to 36 months of age, while they are waiting to receive their personal amplification devices. The Georgia Hearing Aid Loaner Bank lends hearing aids for up to six months, on a onetime per child basis and includes one ear mold per hearing aid. There are no financial restrictions or requirements of the family.  Referrals to the program must be initiated through a UNHSI District Coordinator, who will oversee the application process and serve as a resource to the family throughout the process. Please contact the UNHSI District Coordinator in the family’s home district for assistance.

The UNHSI website is currently under construction. You can contact Tammy Uehlin with all questions at 404-657-2878 until the website is up and working again.

Any additional questions? Please email us at gapathway@gmail.com. We’d be happy to assist you!
