Cell Phone Upgrade Required for Hearing Aids
 
Chef Dolores ordered new Oticon hearing aids to replace her old ones that are six years old. She discovered that her new Samsung Galaxy S21 5G is not compatible with the new hearing aids. We went to Verizon and upgraded her phone to the new Samsung Galaxy S215G. 
By the way, the $6,000+ cost of new hearing aids is not covered by Medicare. Can you imagine the number of seniors who are unable to afford these expenses?
