Over the past 63 years, ASLHC has helped thousands of New Mexicans retain their ability to
communicate with the world,
share the beauty of hearing
their favorite piece of music,
hear a child’s laugh,
read a poem to a loved one
and, for some, express their wants and needs as
they never could before.
Many of our patients cannot rely on insurance support for essential services such as speech therapy or hearing aids. Medicare, for example, will pay for a hearing test but not for hearing aids. When health insurance companies provide only limited or no coverage, children with speech or language disorders may have to go without. As a result, families are left struggling to pay for these services on their own.
ASLHC’s Voucher Fund was established to create further access for those in need of our services, but who lack the means to pay for treatment. Our Voucher Fund is the only one of its kind in New Mexico, and therefore the principal source of help for disadvantaged individuals.
We empower such patients to obtain speech/language therapy or hearing aids at little or no cost to them.
We couldn’t do it without your help, we thank you!
