HearPO (Plymouth, Minnesota), reported that it has signed an agreement with The American Legion National Headquarters. Under the agreement, American Legion and Sons of The American Legion members, as well as their immediate family members may obtain discounted hearing care services and hearing aids, along with other benefits provided by more than 2,700 HearPO-credentialed clinics across the country.
"We are especially proud to offer HearPO benefits to nearly 3 million veterans of our nation's armed forces and their family members," said Michele Fusco, Senior Vice President of Medical Business Operations.
Many individuals who served in the armed forces are struggling with a hearing loss, as a result of exposure to noise and other factors, notes Fusco. "We aim to make it as easy and affordable as possible for them to access high-quality, potentially life-changing hearing healthcare," she says.
In other agreements/contracts: Aetna (Raleigh, North Carolina) said that it has reached agreement on a three-year contract extension with WakeMed Health & Hospitals (Raleigh). The agreement takes effect May 1.
