I have had 10 percent for hearing loss for 38 years there is no money attached to this percentage. I even have a hearing add, and the VA wont send me to speech classes until I go deaf again.

Can anyone out there give me an opinion on the following audiology test from VA.? My MOS In the Army was 112.00 Heavy Weapons. I recently filed for bilateral hearing loss and tinnitus.. Here goes:
Mile sloping to moderate to severe sensorineural hearing loss. Poor word discrimination abilityh at 40%
Normal hearing through 500Hz, sloping to mild to severe sensorineural hearing loss. Fair word discrimination ability at 68%
Outcome Measure Results:
Hearing handicap Inventory for the Elderly-Screeing (HHIE-S) Score-40.
Fail-Score 23-40 with severe significant perceived hearing handicap per patient report.
Ear impressions for binaural hearing aids.

I went to the Veterans Affairs office where I live and filed a claim with the VA. I did not file because I was looking for disability but I did file because I presently wear hearing aids in both ears and I wanted the VA to furnish them. As you guys know aids are very expensive these days.
The claim took a year and I received a letter stating that I was not bad enough for disability pay, but they would furnish the aids. I get my aids on 22 Sept 2010. Saves me about $4,000.00. All this took about 16 months total, but it was well worth the wait.
