Hearing Aid Registration Program

Under Pennsylvania Hearing Aid Sales Registration Law, Act 262, all fitters or sellers of hearing aids must be registered with the Pennsylvania Department of Health Hearing Aid Program. In general, registration includes apprentices, dealers, temporary fitters, and hearing aid fitters. There are approx. 450 fitters, 50 apprentices, and 300 dealers registered under the program. Except for apprentices who usually renew twice a year, everyone else must renew their registration/license annually, April 15th. Selling hearing aids without appropriate registration in the Commonwealth is a direct violation of the law and may be subject to criminal and civil penalties.
