North Shore Hearing Foundation was started by Audiologist Dr. Joan McCormack to fulfill her passion to bring quality hearing care and devices to those who are underinsured or of very low income. Dr. McCormack and her colleagues at Atlantic Hearing Care have long recognized the need for a program to bridge the gap between those eligible for Medicaid and those who have the financial resources to purchase quality hearing devices.
How do we make this happen?
Through our partnership with Atlantic Hearing Care we receive donations of professional services as well as office space.
The first step is to have a hearing evaluation. We will help you complete the financial aid application. The hearing aids are not free, individuals pay a small portion of the cost based on a sliding scale. This fee helps to pay it forward for the next person.
We purchase new hearing aids and several of the large hearing aid manufacturers have discounted and donated hearing aids and related supplies.
We rely on donations from individuals, charitable foundations, civic groups and area businesses to fund the program.
