VFW Members and Their Families Are on the Way to Better Hearing Health

New member benefit focuses on improved hearing

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the U.S. is proud to announce it is working to restore the sounds of life for VFW members and their families with significant savings on hearing care through its new relationship with Amplifon Hearing Health Care. This newest member benefit is one of several the VFW has recently rolled out, to help ensure its members have the best access to meaningful savings and benefits. 

Amplifon ReleaseCurrently, one in nine Americans suffer from hearing loss, and veterans are even more likely to experience hearing loss due to their military experience and exposure to situations where noise levels easily exceed the threshold where damage starts. 

Amplifon is the nation’s largest independent provider of hearing health care solutions with a network of over 5,700 credentialed provider locations nationwide, enabling people to obtain hearing care solutions averaging 62% off retail pricing.  

“Hearing plays such a vital role in a person’s daily life, and too often veterans suffer in silence, sometimes not even realizing they have an issue,” said VFW National Commander Doc Schmitz. “The VFW strives to provide our members and their families with the best services and savings available and we’re proud to work with Amplifon to expand those offerings even further."

“Our mission at Amplifon is to empower people to rediscover all the emotions of sound,” stated Tabatha Erck, Ed.D., MPH, Amplifon Hearing Health Care Senior Vice President. “We are excited about the opportunity to team up with the VFW to offer high-quality, affordable hearing care solutions not only to VFW members but their families and friends as well.”
