A4: During the 1990s while living in my Home State, Michigan, I went to my VA in Ann Arbor. They tested my hearing and gave me computer-set WONDERFUL Hearing Aids, yes, free! I now live full-time in the Philippines and need replacements, so I also have to find out HOW where I now live. I am age 82, a geezer! But, still in good shaped except for a worn out hip.I chose not to get Hip Replacement. Anyway, good luck. I am certain that you local VA will take care of your situation. (RV) 2/12/19
